CAPE TOWN - A woman has drowned at the Strandfontein tidal pool in Cape Town, the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) revealed on Sunday.

The 23-year-old Kraaifontein woman was declared dead on the scene.

The NSRI's Craig Lambinon says police are investigating the Sunday morning's incident.

Meanwhile, the search is still on for three teenagers who went missing while swimming in the sea in Hawston.

"It's believed that they were caught in very strong rip currents. They were swept out to sea where they disappeared under water. The search operation continues," Lambinon said.
