Tourist drowns in Mossel Bay

On Thursday 19 December 2019, NSRI Mossel Bay duty crew were activated following reports of a drowning in progress at Oyster Bay, Pinnacle Point, in Mossel Bay

The sea rescue craft St Blaze Rescuer and Vodacom Rescuer 4 responded and WC Government Health EMS, the SA Police Services, a Police Dive Unit, Police Sea Borderline Control and By Grace ambulance services responded.

It appears a husband and wife, from Sweden, had entered the sea to swim and were in shallow water when the wife, aged 61, was swept out to sea by rip currents.

During a search the body of the lady was located and recovered onto our sea rescue craft before being transferred onto a Police Sea Borderline Control boat, at sea, and the body was transported to Mossel Bay harbour and taken into the care of the Government Health Forensic Pathology Services.

Police have opened an inquest docket.

On behalf of NSRI, Police and emergency services involved in this operation Condolences are conveyed to the husband, family and friends of the deceased.
