 A 55-year-old man from Van Der Bijl Park in Johannesburg was rescued by National Sea Rescue Institute volunteer sea rescue crew in Port Edward this morning.

It is believed that the man had fallen overboard a fishing ski-boat at Silver Beach.

NSRI Spokesperson Craig Lambinon said it appeared a boat had been side slanted by a wave.

Lambinon said the man fell overboard two lifeguards from the ubuntu lifeguards went in and rescued the man. They brought him to the beach where NSRI medics treated him for a fractured left tibia.

“He was taken to the sea rescue station and treated further before a Netcare 911 ambulance arrived and transported him to hospital in a stable condition” Lambinon added.

In another incident NSRI Shelly Beach volunteer sea rescue duty crew were activated following a ski-boat that had mechanical failure.  The boat had five crew members on board. 

NSRI Spokesperson Craig Lambinon said the five crew members were taken off the boat and brought safely ashore by NSRI Shelley beach.

Lambinon said the marine motor mechanic brought the marine in safely under reduced power. The owner will arrange to have his motor repaired.
