Durban - A lifeguard drowned at Margate Beach on Saturday morning, the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) said.
Shelly Beach station commander Mark Harlen said that the lifeguard, in his early 20s, was reported missing at 10:20.
Members of the NSRI, the police and Tower 13 lifeguard services participated in the search.
A police helicopter spotted the man's body, and the NSRI's rescue craft recovered it from the surf.
Police had opened an inquest into the death, but no foul play was suspected, said Harlen.
