The National Sea Rescue Institute in Durban and volunteer sea rescue duty crew were activated following a request for assistance from the 15 foot ski-boat BINGO reporting to have engine mechanical failure and taking water 10 nautical miles off-shore of uShaka.

NSRI Spokesperson Craig Lambinon said the duty crew responded to the Durban Sea Rescue base when it was reported that the crew of BINGO had restored motor power to one of her two motors and were under way again on one motor and bailing water successfully.

Lambinon said the crew of BINGO, 4 males all from KwaZulu-Natal were out of danger.

He added that it appears that in the choppy sea conditions BINGO had been swamped by water when they had experienced motor mechanical failure forcing them to raise the alarm while making an effort to repair their motors.
