PARTNERS of the K9 Search and Rescue unit, Warrant Officer Rommel da Rosa and rescue dog, Bear, spent time with pupils from St Martin de Porres School in Port Shepstone on Thursday teaching them about the dangers of swimming if you don’t know how to or where it is unsafe.

“Da Rosa told the young ones not to swim where there are no lifeguards on duty,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid.

He also informed them of the consequences when young children accompany strangers to unknown places.

The dog and its human partner demonstrated how Bear can find missing people.

Some of the children hid behind a building, but thanks to Bear’s excellent sense of smell, he found “the missing children” quickly.
