Yesterday afternoon National Sea and Rescue Institue volunteers were called out following reports from a diver charter boat, heading towards Hout Bay harbour, reporting to have a 65-year-old male diver on-board who was unconscious and requiring urgent medical assistance.

NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon says β€œon arrival on the scene they met the boat and Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) commenced on a 65-year-old Cape Town male, following all efforts to resuscitate him. He was declared dead on the scene.”

Lambinon also said that β€œa further four divers that had been left behind by dive boat in their race to get to Hout Bay were picked up by NSRI rescue craft, which went out to fetch them, they were all fine and there were no further injuries.”
