CT beach goers must be vigilant
The City of Cape Town has increased the number of shark spotters along the False Bay coastline.
CAPE TOWN - The City of Cape Town on Saturday said it had increased the number of shark spotters at beaches along the False Bay coastline.
Several shark sightings were made at Muizenberg, St James, Fish Hoek, and Kogel Bay on Friday, as red flags remain up.
The city's head of environmental policy, Gregg Oelofse, explained that the red flags are a general precaution.
He said the red flags will be removed only once it is safe to do so.
Beaches are open, but the city urged citizens to be extra vigilant when in the water, as sharks have been spotted close to the shore.
Last week Thursday, David Lilienfeld died when he was bitten by a Great White shark while bodyboarding with his brother at Kogel Bay.
