CAPE TOWN - Two people have drowned in separate incidents in the Western Cape.
A 16-year-old boy died after he was swept out to see by rip-currents at Mossel Bay on Saturday.
His body was recovered by police divers.
In the second incident at Koegel Bay on the False Bay coast, a 25-year-old man died when he also found himself caught in a rip-current.
The National Sea Rescue Institute's Craig Lambinon says despite extensive CPR efforts, the man was declared dead on the scene.
"In both cases police have opened an inquest docket. The bodies have been handed in to the care of the pathology services."
