STATEMENT BY JEREMIAH JACKSON, NSRI SHELLY BEACH STATION COMMANDER:
At 09h25, Tuesday, 24th September, NSRI Shelly Beach duty crew were placed on alert to assist a local charter boat suffering motor mechanical failure and needing assistance to beach.
Passengers of the casualty craft were transferred onto a fellow charter boat and they were brought to shore safely without incident.
The sea rescue craft Shelly Spirit was placed on alert while the casualty craft, running on one motor, came through the surf to the beach and once safely beached no further assistance was required.
NSRI commend the local charter boats for their team work.
