Water-related tragedies struck again when a twenty-nine-year-old Belvedere, oThongathi, resident drowned while swimming at a community pool in Buffelsdale, oThongathi, over the festive season.

According to reports, paramedics from RUSA were called out to the scene by the public after the unresponsive man was pulled out of the pool by a lifeguard. Upon arrival, cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) was in progress. Paramedics from three private ambulance services took over resuscitation efforts. However, attempts to revive the victim were unsuccessful and he was declared deceased at the scene.

The family of the deceased explained that they were spending New Year’s Day at the pool. The man had entered the bathing area with his snorkel on. They noticed him floating for a while and assumed that he was breathing through the snorkel. After several minutes they informed lifeguards at the pool that the swimmer was not moving and had become unresponsive.

Circumstances surrounding the victim’s death has not been established at this stage. In a separate incident, the body of the young boy, who was swept out to sea, was recovered.  The deceased was located on the beach, approximately 1km north of where he went swimming.
