Sarah Smith, NSRI St Francis Bay station commander, said:
At 16h07, Sunday, 27th November, NSRI St Francis Bay duty crew were activated following a request for medical assistance from the local Chokka fishing vessel Derma reporting a 50 year old crewman onboard collapsed unconscious suffering suspected dehydration in the vicinity of Aasvogels and the vessel reporting to be headed towards the Port of St Francis.
The sea rescue craft Spirit of St Francis II launched and on arrival on the scene the sea rescue crew found the fisherman pulseless and breathless.
He was transferred onto the sea rescue craft where CPR was initiated.
CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) efforts continued onboard the sea rescue craft and on arrival in Port Private Care ambulance services paramedics took over care of the patient but after all efforts to resuscitate the man were exhausted he was declared deceased by paramedics.
Sincerest Condolences are conveyed to family, friends and his fellow crewmen.
