Cape Town - A Western Cape man died on Thursday morning after being swept off the rocks in Pringle Bay, the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) said.

NSRI spokesman Craig Lambinon said the man and his friend were believed to be cray-fishing from the rocks at The Point before 8.30am, when a wave swept them out to sea.

“On arrival on-scene we found one man, an adult, being attended to in a private ambulance. It is reported that he had managed to swim to shore,” Lambinon said.

A helicopter spotted the second man in the surf and a rescue swimmer jumped into the water to hoist him in with a static line.

He was declared dead on his arrival at the shore. - Sapa
