A man has died after being submerged at a beach in Leasure Bay in Port Edward on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast, said paramedics on Friday.
Emergency service Netcare 911 responded to reports of a drowning in the morning, said spokesperson Shawn Herbst.
“Reports from the scene indicate that an adult male and an adult female were swimming at a beach when they both got in [a difficult situation],” Herbst said.
“The female was found to be in a stable condition, the male however was assessed by an advanced life support paramedic and found to have no signs of life and tragically declared deceased.”
