JOHANNESBURG - Dozens of people gathered at Rocklands Beach on Monday in Sea Point where rescuers were searching for three teenagers who were swept out to sea.

The National Sea Rescue Institute’s (NSRI) spokesperson Craig Lambinon said: “We do also have family members on the scene and police trauma counsellors assisting them. There have been rumours of a siting but we have confirmed to the family that should anything happen, they will be the first to know.”
