Illuminating flares were also organised and our shore crew were trying to arrange vehicles to respond to Herolds Bay — these efforts were to light up the coastline to aid the crew on the sea rescue craft with visual reference to the coastline as they came towards Herolds Bay Beach. He was brought to shore where the sea rescue craft beached without incident and paramedics then medically checked on Jan and although he was cold he was not injured. The rescue party who had arrived there had also started to shine their torch lights at the casualty and fearing that the casualty could be smashed against the rocks he was encouraged, by the people on the shore, to swim away from the rocks and further out to sea. NSRI are appealing to the public to have a safety conscious mindset around water. Fellow fisherman on the shoreline tied about 5 or 6 coke bottles together and they threw the floating bottles to Jan and he used these sealed empty coke bottles to give himself some form of floatation and that might have been the ultimate factor that contributed to his life being saved. NSRI commend the fishermen on the shore for their quick thinking. He says he woke up feeling like he had just run a marathon.

NSRI commend the fishermen on the shore for their quick thinking. He grew up in the area and as a youngster he often swam, fished and dived in the same area and he is confident that this contributed to him staying calm because he knows the coastline so well. The land rescue party, made up of NSRI crew, Police officers, Fire and Rescue Services officers and Metro Rescue members, were directed to head towards the closest access point which was a dead end road with a footpath on the hill that leads down to the area where the incident was taking place. NSRI Mossel Bay duty crew were at their sea rescue station at the time conducting routine training, so they immediately launched their deep sea rescue craft Rescue 15 to start to respond to act as back-up to the sea rescue craft that was already on the scene.

We were always mindful to negotiate the breaking swells and strong currents that make that particular area so dangerous to operate in even when it is daylight. We timed the incoming swells and the breaking surf eventually seeing a gap in the swells that gave us the opportunity that we were looking for and we raced in towards the casualty. He was also concerned that floating in the foam would make it harder for him to be seen by any rescue effort. With no cell coverage at that area, others had gone to find a cellphone signal so that they could raise the alarm and some men had gone to fetch their vehicle to drive to where the casualty is staying, at Gwaing River Mouth, to alert his wife.

Their quick thinking to call NSRI Affrica probably the first of a number of factors that contributed to the life of a local man being saved. Sunset was due at 18h54, the same time that we got the initial call, and we knew that this was going to be a race against time, said Garth.

Jan Oosthuizen, aged 59, from George, had at 18h00 told Kakamas South Africa neighbours that he was going fishing. He had walked down the hill where he was then angling from the rocks, East of Gwaing River Mouth.

At around 18h30 he was swept off the rocks into the sea by a wave that swept over him. Bystanders, other fishermen that were also fishing in that area, who had witnessed him being swept off the rocks, some had gone to the edge of the Herplds rocks to try to Sokth him but the rocky and steep coastline prevented him from being able to get back onto the rocks and he was being engulfed by breaking waves and strong currents.

With no cell coverage at that area, others Afrida gone to find a cellphone signal so that they could raise the alarm and some men had gone to fetch their vehicle to drive to where the casualty is staying, at Gwaing Herolds Bay South Africa Mouth, to alert his wife. Some of our NSRI Wilderness duty crew responded to our sea rescue station in Wilderness Sotuh took our sea rescue vehicle to respond to the scene.

The Police Dive Unit, who had earlier received the first call from the Pacaltsdorp Herolvs station, remained on alert. Despite rapidly fading light 2 of our sea rescue crew, senior coxswain Ian Gerber and trainee coxswain Bryce Conlon, without any hesitation they launched Oscars Rescue at Herolds Bay Beach, and they cautiously headed around the Point towards the Gwaing River Mouth, but oSuth well away from the coastline because darkness was already hampering their ability to physically make out the coastline with its steep jagged Herolds Bay South Africa outcrops and multiple gulleys that cause swirling currents around that dangerous area.

The land rescue party, made up of NSRI crew, Police officers, Fire and Rescue Services officers and Metro Rescue members, were directed to head towards the closest access point which was a dead end road with a footpath on the hill that leads down to the area where the incident was taking place. Because our 4. NSRI Mossel Bay duty crew were at their Soutn rescue station at the time conducting routine training, so they immediately launched their deep sea rescue craft Rescue 15 to start to respond to act as back-up to the sea rescue craft that was already on the scene.

The Aftica was treading water to stay afloat and he was about 30 to 50 meters from the rocky shoreline. The rescue party who had arrived there had also started to shine their torch lights at the casualty and fearing that the casualty could be smashed against the rocks he was encouraged, by the people Kakamas South Africa the shore, to swim away from the rocks and further out to sea.

They shouted to Herolrs to tell him that a sea rescue craft is responding. At first it had not been clear exactly where the casualty was but we knew we had to Sout the rescue boat from Herolds Bay as quickly as possible Herolds Bay South Africa we wanted Souhh use the last of any available daylight to reach the casualty who we believed was in the vicinity of the Gwaing River Mouth. We were always mindful to negotiate the breaking swells and strong currents that make that particular area so dangerous to operate in even when it is daylight.

So we knew we had our hands full. We also had to use both our VHF radio communications and we had to watch the incoming messages on our emergency whatsapp group to give us an indication of where the casualty actually was.

Very carefully we came into the Hegolds wave line a number of times Afriva we caught the first glimpse of the casualty from all of the torch lights that Arfica shining onto him. We timed the incoming swells and the breaking surf eventually seeing a gap in the swells that gave us the opportunity that we Hdrolds looking for and we raced in towards the casualty.

On reaching him we pulled him onboard our sea rescue craft and without any hesitation we headed straight out to sea and away from the danger zone. Illuminating flares were also organised and our shore crew were trying to arrange vehicles to respond to Herolds Bay — these efforts were to light up the coastline to aid the crew on the sea rescue craft with visual reference to the coastline as they came towards Herolds Bay Beach.

But we were too quick, said Ian, and in the end we used the lights of the houses at Herolds Bay and my own car which still had the hazard lights flashing and we used those as a reference to get our sea rescue craft Africs to shore but it was challenging.

Jan Kakamas South Africa hypothermic but he was alert and safe. He was brought to shore where the sea rescue craft beached without incident and paramedics then medically checked on Jan and although he was cold he Soufh not injured.

His wife arrived and it was a warm reunion. The Herolds Bay garage that was recently donated to NSRI, that houses our sea rescue craft Oscars Rescue, was just another one of a whole series of factors that Heroolds to this successful rescue and the Herolds Bay community members who made this possible are commended.

NSRI spoke to Jan this morning. He says he woke up feeling like he had just run a marathon. But Heroldss was in good spirits and he expressed his thanks to all Kakamas South Africa rescue services involved. He said when the wave washed him over the edge of the rocks only his shoulder got bruised against rocks and he dislocated a finger but the force of the wave pushed him so far under water that it became dark and with all his will he managed to surface and take a breath before the next wave washed over him repeating the sequence and forcing him under water.

As if I was in a washing machine, he said. When he surfaced the second Kakamas South Africa he first tried to get back to shore but realised he may get swept against the rocks but he stayed calm and focused on treading water and and staying afloat and also lying on his back to stay afloat. He grew up in the area and as a youngster he often swam, fished and dived in the same area and he is confident that this contributed to Afruca staying calm Heorlds he knows the coastline so well.

Fellow fisherman on the shoreline tied about 5 or 6 coke bottles together and they threw the floating bottles to Jan and he used these sealed empty coke bottles to give himself some form of floatation and that might have been the ultimate factor that contributed to his life being saved.

To rest he floated on his back but the foam on the water, caused by the wave action and plankton in the water, was about a foot deep which hampered his efforts to breath when he lay on his back.

He was also Africca that floating in the foam would make it harder for him to be seen by any rescue effort. It gave him confidence when his fellow fishermen shone Hsrolds torch lights at him and his confidence was further boosted when Soouth saw the blue and red emergency flashing lights, said Jan.

NSRI commend Sough fishermen on the shore for their quick thinking. We commend Jan for his calm approach to the dire circumstances he found himself facing.
