CAPE TOWN - A man has died while attempting to rescue a 13-year-old girl from drowning at sea.
The man attempted to save the girl who ran into trouble while swimming at the Wolfgat Nature Reserve earlier this week.

When she got into difficulty into the water, the 29-year-old got into the water to assist her, but got into difficulty. It’s reported that an unidentified man arrived at the scene and went into the water. He was able to assist them out of the water.”
The girl was eventually rescued.
