Teen rescued with 'Pink Bouy'

On 28 December 2017, a teenager from Cape Town on holiday in Wilderness was rescued from drowning by a bystander who made use of a NSRI 'Pink Bouy'

Johan Lamprecht from Strand was spending time on the beach in Wilderness when he noticed a teenager in difficulty in the surf.

Following the instructions on the board, Lamprecht used the flotation device and proceeded to swim towards the victim while his family used the information on the board to raise the alarm.

NSRI rescuers responded immediately by launching a vessel and also using their quad bike to race to the scene approximately 3km from the Wilderness NSRI station. Life guards also responded to the scene.

On arrival at the scene, it was confirmed that a young male, 16 year old Kavish Narshi was successfully rescued and was now in the shallows. Life guards assisted getting the victim to dry land.

The victim was subjected to a medical examination by Western Cape Government Health EMS paramedics, and found that no further treatment was necessary.

NSRI commended Lamprecht and his family for their quick response and raising the alarm.
