Man risks injury jumping off rocks

At 15h35, Saturday, 21st November, members of the NSRI Hermanus duty crew responded to Dreunkrans, between Hermanus town and the New Harbour, following reports of a man believed to be in difficulty in the water after reportedly jumping off rocks, rocks that are known to be popular where people jump into the sea.

Rough sea conditions hampered the man from swimming back to shore and at times he risked being battered into rocks by the incoming swells but he managed to get out of the water safely unassisted.

Despite NSRI suggesting to the man to refrain from jumping into the sea because of the rough sea swells the man again jumped off Dreunkrans and again faced an arduous task to get out of the water again risking injury.

Fortunately the man eventually managed to swim to shore and fortunately he refrained from jumping into the sea again and no assistance was required.  The local man is aged in his early 20’s.
