Dramatic rescue at Main
Sunday at Southbroom
Main Beach was a dramatic day that could have turned ugly save for the speedy
action taken by Ubuntu Lifeguards.
At about 11h30 the two
lifeguards on duty dived into the water at the southern point to save three
people who had been swept off the rocks by a large wave.
At the same time, a
Kite surfer got into difficulty and risked being swept out to sea by the 20 knot
Fortunately, one of the
lifeguards had managed to make a call to his boss Hilgard Muller who, together
with a lifeguard from Ramsgate Ski Boat Bay, came to assist senior lifeguard
Those washed off the
rocks were quickly brought to safety whilst Hilgard, who had arrived on a jetski,
pursued the kite-surfer who had been swept past Granny's Pool.
We thank and
congratulate Ubuntu Lifeguards for all that they do to keep our beach-goers
safe. Without their quick and appropriate response, Sunday could have ended in
