NSRI responded to Milnerton Lagoon Beach yesterday following reports of drownings. A local surfer Chris Poseman notices two young men in the water off-shore who appeared to be in trouble.
Kieno Kammies speaks to Craig Lambinon Spokesperson at National Sea Rescue Institute.
Two swimmers were swept away by rip currents says NSRI's Craig Lambinon at Milnerton Lagoon Beach.
There is a very strong rip current in that area.— Craig Lambinon, NSRI
There was also a drowning earlier on Sunday at Monwabisi Beach, he says.
The Springtide had also caused high and rough seas.
He says when caught in a rip current do not panic. Stay afloat and use your arms and legs in a circular motion to tread water. Let the current take you out to sea and then use the waves to bring you back to shore.
