Two rescued after their kayak washed ashore

Two men in Plettenberg Bay were assisted by the National Sea Rescue Institute when their kayak was ashore.

The 2 men, from Plettenberg Bay, both aged in their mid thirties, told the rescuers that they both managed to swim to shore but while they were wading in knee high water towards the beach one of the men stepped in a hole and was washed off his feet by a strong outgoing tide and was swept back out to sea.

NSRI’s Craig Lambinon says one of the men was washed back to the sea.

“Two men’s kayaks capsized in the surf one man was rescued from the sea and one man was found safely ashore”

Neither of the men were injured in the incident.
