The body of a 52-year-old man was recovered at Kleinmond Harbour in the Western Cape after the boat he was in capsized.
The man had been retrieving fishing nets on Sunday morning.
According to the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI), the man had been out in the water with another man, aged 29, who managed to swim to shore after the incident. He sustained minor injuries.
"A search commenced for his 52-year-old uncle, from Villiersdorp, who was missing in the water. During a search, the body of the man was located and recovered in the shallow surf-line along the rocky shoreline," said the NSRI.
Meanwhile, in another incident, emergency services retrieved the body of an unidentified woman in the surf-line in front of the swimming pool in Sea Point.
"The body of an unidentified female was recovered on the beach by police divers, who were assisted by Fire and Rescue Services divers, lifeguards and by NSRI rescue swimmers," said the NSRI.
