Vaughn Seconds, the station commander of the Strandfontein branch of the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) revealed, on Wednesday, that a 29-year-old man died after attempting to save a young teen from drowning at the Wolfgat Nature Reserve in Mitchell’s Plain.
National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) Strandfontein station commander Vaughn Seconds said: “Despite extensive efforts by paramedics to resuscitate the 29-year-old man, sadly he was declared deceased on the scene.” Seconds said paramedics took the girl and the other man, who is in his 30s, to hospital.
The EFF’s first anti-crime march as part of this campaign was in Strandfontein on Friday.
While the protest was initially arranged for members of the EFF, Strandfontein residents who had enough of crime in the area soon joined in and called “for more police visibility in the area.” One resident told reporters that there was a shooting in the area just four days ago and that she is concerned about the welfare of youth who “have been dying through gang violence.” A 19-year-old teen lost his life just this week.
Strandfontein residents say they are fed up and they have taken their frustrations to the police, handing over a memorandum of demands.
