Surfers in collision in Jeffreys Bay
Johannesburg - Three surfers collided, seriously injuring two of them, at Jeffreys Bay in the Eastern Cape at the weekend, the NSRI said on Monday.
"We found a 15-year-old male and a 16-year-old female both suffering injuries after reportedly colliding with a surfer while they were both surfing," National Sea Rescue Institute spokesperson Craig Lambinon said in a statement.
The boy suffered a laceration to the head, possible spinal injuries and a possible concussion. The girl sustained a cut to the head.
The NSRI found them on the beach after they had been brought ashore by fellow surfers on Sunday around 18:30. Both were hospitalised.
"The surfer that they collided with on the water was not injured," Lambinon said.
