A drowning man saved at the last minute
A man who was rescued after his sailing dinghy capsized in the Langebaan Lagoon near Club Mykonos was so grateful that he gave the dingy to his rescuers. The NSRI says 49-year-old Martin Kuhn of Bellville ended up in the water on Saturday when his dingy capsized and he became exhausted trying to turn it right side up. His life jacked wasn’t keeping him afloat and he felt he was going to drown. That’s when 20-year-old Bronwyn Thomson and 25-year-old Tarren Smith came to his aid in a canoe. They saved Khun and were sailing his dingy back as well when the NSRI arrived on the scene.
