NSRI assist stricken launch vehicle

Andre Fraser, NSRI Mossel Bay station commander, said: On the afternoon of Saturday, 12th January, NSRI Station 15 Mossel Bay dispatched the sea rescue craft St Blaze Rescuer and an NSRI rescue vehicle to the launch slip way at the Yacht Club in Mossel Bay Harbour and the SA Police Services and a breakdown recovery vehicle responded.

Reports had been received of a vehicle that rolled down the slipway into the water while launching a boat.

It was initially suspected that people were still in the vehicle but on our arrival on the scene it was found that no one had been in the vehicle when it rolled into the water.

NSRI were assisted by the breakdown recovery vehicle crew and the casualty vehicle and their trailer and their boat were recovered and no further assistance was required.
