NSRI appeals to water users to be safe

A 35-year-old woman from Mossel Bay has drowned at Glentana on Sunday.

NSRI’s Craig Lambinon said a local Neighbourhood Watch member had rescued the woman from the water.

‘’CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) efforts commenced. Sadly after all efforts to resuscitate the female were exhausted she was declared deceased by paramedics.’’

‘’The body of the female has been taken into the care of Government Health Forensic Pathology Services. Police have opened an inquest docket,’’ added Lambinon.

Meanwhile, an 11-year-old rescued a toddler following a non-fatal drowning on Saturday

‘’At 14h32, Saturday, 26 November, NSRI Knysna duty crew were activated following of a incident, involving a child, at the Green Hole, Leisure Isle. On arrival on the scene medical treatment was commenced on a 3 year old male child that had been rescued from the lagoon reportedly by a youngster, aged approximately 11.’’

‘’The child was stabilised on the scene before being transported to hospital by ER24 ambulance in a serious condition. The swift response is commended,’’ added Lambinon.

The NSRI has appealed to water lovers to be cautious.

‘’We are appealing to bathers to only swim at beaches protected by lifeguards. Obey the lifeguards instructions and only swim where the lifeguards post their safety marcade swimming areas using their red and yellow flags.

Children should have responsible adult supervision when they are swimming at swimming pools, inland waterways, at beaches, and lagoons.

Lambinon encouraged water users to have a safety conscience mindset in and around water.
