Cape Town - One man died and three others were injured when their boat capsized near Hermanus in the Western Cape on Tuesday, the National Sea Rescue Institute said.

The 29-year-old man's body was recovered by a member of the public, said NSRI spokesman Craig Lambinon.

A 47-year-old man, who had stayed with the boat, was rescued by a nearby private boat. A 19-year-old man and a 12-year-old boy managed to swim ashore, Lambinon said. They were from Pretoria. The boat capsized off-shore around 1pm while they were returning from fishing.
