Cape Town - A 57-year-old man is believed to have drowned in Rooi Els, Western Cape on Saturday, the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) said.
The man was fishing when he was swept off rocks, said spokesman Craig Lambinon.
“He was swept out to sea before disappearing under water.”
NSRI Gordons Bay, Western Cape Emergency Management Services and the police were activated.
“An extensive air, sea and shore search has revealed no sign of the Mitchells Plain man.”
Police were investigating, he said.
On Friday afternoon, a 43-year-old man collapsed after swimming in Simon's Town near Cape Town.
The Bergvliet man was declared dead on the scene by paramedics, said Lambinon.
“It appears that the man suffered a heart attack after coming out of the water following a swim.”
Later on the day, a 55-year-old man was found dead in a motor yacht in Dassen Island near Yzerfontein in the Western Cape.
Lambinon said the man is believed to have also suffered a heart attack.
“His body has been handed into the care of the forensic pathology services.”
Police have opened an inquest docket and were investigating, he said.
