Please warn friends and family about the possibility of becoming trapped in these coves.

Well done to NSRI Gordon’s Bay Station 9, GBMed, Cape Town Traffic Department, Law Enforcement and Metro Police who responded and got these seven teenagers to safety.
The teenagers were placed in life jackets and rescue helmets and, one by one, our rescue swimmers waded them through chest deep surf.
Once all teenagers were safely extricated from the cove they were walked up the trail to the R44 roadway and reunited with family. Well done all crew!
