Boy feared drowned at Hout Bay
Cape Town - An 11-year-old boy who was swept into the sea after being knocked off rocks in Hout Bay is presumed to have drowned, the National Sea Rescue Institute said on Sunday.
Spokesperson Craig Lambinon said the boy was not found in an extensive ongoing search on Sunday.
He went missing on Saturday afternoon after being swept off a rock at Karbonkelberg.
He was part of a group of young boys who were picking small sea snails near the surf.
Lambinon urged parents to supervise children at the beach as extremely rough sea conditions were expected for the next few months.
