A diver passed away near Simonstown

A diver from Edgemead has died during a scuba diving. The case happened approximately at 3 pm on Saturday, when a buddy of a victim has noticed that the second diver was falling down.

“His dive buddy dumped his scuba gear and rescued him towards the shore where he raised the alarm,” said  NSRI Simonstown station commander,  Darren Zimmerman.

“Pisces Dive School divers happened to be on the beach at the time and their divers waded into the surf and assisted both men out the water and commenced CPR (Cardio Pulmonary resuscitation) efforts on the one man.”

“However, the NSRI have learned with sadness that the scuba-diver, a 26-year-old Edgemead man, has succumbed to injuries in hospital and passed away on Sunday afternoon.”
