The body of a man was found in Zeekoevlei last Sunday morning.

Vaughn Seconds, NSRI Strandfontein station commander, says the body was found in the water near a small capsized boat on the eastern side of the vlei.

The NSRI sent rescue swimmers and the police, their divers, provincial emergency services and Cape Town Fire and Rescue Services rescue divers also responded, he says.

“Paddlers had happened upon the body of the man floating in a life jacket in the vlei. These paddlers then brought the body to the shoreline and contacted rescue services.”

Police as well as fire and rescue divers recovered the capsized boat.

Police are investigating the circumstances of the man’s death.
