Early Wednesday morning the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) received a distress call regarding a fishing deck boat that was sinking between Mossel Bay and Wilderness, with five of its crew members on board.

“It was confirmed from the fishing vessel that they had rescued all five crew who were all reported to be safe,” says NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon.

The fishing vessel called Bounty was in the area at the time the distress call was made and could respond swiftly to help.

“All five crew were brought to Mossel Bay harbour arriving here at 05h30 this morning. The vessel took water causing it to sink and the cause of the vessel taking on water has not been determined,” says Lambinon.
