A 25-year-old man died in Gordons Bay beach

Police are investigating the death of a 25-year-old man who drowned in Gordons Bay, Cape Town on Sunday.

The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) responded to reports of a drowning in progress next to the Gordons Bay Naval Base.

They found that a group of swimmers had rescued a man who was seen not moving in the water.

NSRI spokesperson, Craig Lambinon, says unfortunately the man was already dead.

“CoCT lifeguards, on duty at Gordons Bay Main Beach, had reportedly also just arrived on the scene from their neighbouring duty beach and they confirmed that an adult male was out of the water. He had been rescued by a group of swimmers who had reportedly noticed the man not moving in the water and they had entered the water to rescue the man.

“The lifeguards initiated CPR efforts and raised the alarm.

“The SAPS, Cape Town Fire and Rescue Services, GB Med sec ambulance services, WC Government Health EMS, ER24 ambulance services and CoCT Law Enforcement responded”, he added.
