Durban - A Gauteng man drowned at Boulders Bay in Ballito, north of Durban, on Tuesday afternoon, paramedics said.

"Reports from the beach indicate that the man was in the surf when he threw his hands in the air," said Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha.

"The man disappeared under the water shortly afterwards."

Paramedics tried in vain to resuscitate him.
