Man drowns after falling from yacht
Johannesburg - A man drowned after going overboard a yacht off the Port Elizabeth coast early on Sunday morning, said the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI).
Spokesperson Craig Lambinon said the yacht was returning to Port Elizabeth from a night sail when the man, a member of the crew, went overboard in unknown circumstances around 02:20.
The skipper of the yacht raised the alarm and began a search for the man, apparently in his late 40's.
The NSRI also joined in the search. The man was discovered in the water. However, despite efforts to resucitate him, he died shortly after.
Police were investigating and an inquest docket was opened.
