NSRI searches for missing fishing party
Rescue officials are currently searching for four people, who went missing, in Plettenberg Bay.
CAPE TOWN - Police divers and National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) members are scouring the Keurbooms River Mouth for four missing people after their boat capsized at Plettenberg Bay.
They were among a group of six who had gone fishing.
Two bodies have been recovered, thus far.
The police's Bernadine Steyn says, "The body of a 43-year-old woman was found on Thursday night and this morning a body of an eight-year-old boy. Four people are still missing."
Meanwhile, Metro EMS teams are still searching for a paramedic who is presumed to have drowned in the Langeberg area.
The ambulance the woman was driving was recovered in Kogmanskloof River, near Montague, earlier this week.
She went missing on Tuesday while driving to Ashton en route to pick up some passengers.
It is believed the vehicle was swept away in flood waters. The vehicle has since been discovered.
EMS spokesperson Keri Davids says, "The staff is motivated and dedicated to the search. We are really assisting the SAPS diving unit as it is their case at the moment."
