Cape Town -

A fisherman was found dead, trapped underwater in fishing nets near Hermanus on Sunday morning, the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) said.

The NSRI sent a rescue team to the scene after a paddler told it about an upturned boat with a small outboard motor, said spokesman Craig Lambinon.

The team recovered the capsized boat, named Orion, and found the body of a man wearing blue overall pants and a black rain jacket with three layers of clothing underneath, he said.

The man had not been identified and it was not known where the boat was from.

The body had been sent to the police's and forensic pathology service. - Sapa
