Man goes miss­ing while scuba div­ing

Cape Argus - - METRO -

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. |
