Man goes missing while scuba diving
DESPITE an extensive search on Sunday there was no sign of a man, believed to be in his early twenties, who went missing while scuba diving at Duiker Island, off Hout Bay, the NSRI said.
NSRI Hout Bay station commander Geoff Stevens said sea rescue craft had conducted an extensive search.
In a separate incident NSRI Hout Bay crew on the sea rescue craft Albie Matthews came across 10 paddlers, men and women on canoes, who appeared to be in difficulty in the bay.
They had paddled from Hout Bay harbour to Hout Bay beach, and while returning they were caught in a north-westerly wind and were making no headway against the wind to get back to the harbour. They accepted the NSRI’s offer of help, Stevens said. |
