Man dies during fishing trip
Johannesburg - A man died when he fell into the water while fishing at the Umdloti north beach, on the KwaZulu-Natal north coast on Sunday, paramedics said.
The man, 20, was on a fishing trip with a friend when one of them hooked a large fish, said Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha.
The man went to grab the line when he fell into the water and got washed out to sea.
The friend dived in to rescue him but also landed in difficulty, said Botha.
A bystander pulled both of the men out the water and started to resuscitate the 20-year-old, but he was declared dead on the scene.
His friend was not injured.
