NSRI STATION 21 - St Francis BayNSRI Jeffreys Bay had an unusual call out yesterday causing them to launch sea rescue craft Discovery Rescue Runner 12. A man suspected of having committed petty crime on the beach had taken to the sea to escape law enforcement officers at Supertubes  during the Corona Open yesterday. The man swam out past the breaker line and appeared to be difficulty hence the call for assistance from NSRI.

When the rescue craft arrived on the scene they discovered the man had managed to reach the beach where he was taken into custody by law enforcement.
