Cape Town - Two law enforcement officers braved freezing waters in Sea Point to rescue a man suspected of attempting suicide, the City of Cape Town said on Thursday.City law enforcement inspector Wayne Dyason said security guards had approached law enforcement officers on Wednesday to report that a man appeared to be preparing to hurl himself off a rock into the water at Sunset Beach."Huge swells were running at the time and the man would almost certainly be taking his own life if he jumped. The officers attempted to speak him out of jumping into the surf, but he seemed intent on [jumping]," Dyason said.The man entered the water and disappeared beneath the surf, but a "huge wave" forced him to resurface and pushed him toward the rocks, he explained."This gave the officers an opportunity to bravely go in, risking their own lives, to rescue the victim."They managed to grab and hold onto him in the roiling surf, and were eventually swept onto a rock. Still holding on to the patient, they made their way out of the water," Dyason said.The 24-year-old man was taken to Somerset Hospital in a stable condition, he confirmed.
