The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) Melkbosstrand were called out by the Transnet National Ports, following an incident that took place off Bloubergstrand yesterday afternoon.

It is reported that a bulk carrier, Doce River’s, anchor dragged, causing it to drift close to shore.

NSRI responded and managed to get the vessel to deeper waters and out of harms way.

“The crew managed to get the vessel started and they’ve headed out to deep sea to safety,” said NSRI’s Craig Lambinon.

Lambinon said that no one was injured in the incident.
