Tourist rescued near Muizenberg
Johannesburg - A Brazilian tourist had to be rescued from near drowning at Surfers Corner Beach, near Muizenberg, on Sunday, said the City of Cape Town.
The 25-year-old Brazilian woman was swimming in "fairly rough" surf conditions and was rescued by two surfers, said the city's disaster risk management centre head Wilfred Solomons-Johannes.
He said the woman, identified as Gleema Lima, swallowed water and lacerated her leg on the rocks, and was in a state of shock.
Her condition was stabilised on the scene.
"All beach-goers are urged to be cautious when swimming, as rough seas and strong currents make conditions dangerous for swimmers," said Solomons-Johannes.
