Quentin Botha‚ the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) station commander for Table Bay‚ said the man‚ believed to be in his late 20s or early 30s‚ had apparently slipped off a moored boat into the water while boarding the boat from the jetty on Saturday night.

“NSRI rescue swimmers responded directly to the scene and the sea rescue craft Spirit of Day was launched and Community Medics‚ WC Government Health EMS rescue and ambulance‚ Cape Town Fire and Rescue Services rescue dive unit‚ the Police Dive Unit and the SA Police Services responded‚” Botha said.

However‚ no sign of the man could be found during a surface water search in the vicinity.

“Police divers‚ supported by Cape Town Fire and Rescue Services rescue divers and EMS Rescue Squad rescue divers‚ conducted a scuba dive search and the body of the man was located and recovered from under water and paramedics declared the man deceased‚” Botha said.

Police had opened an inquest docket and the body of the man had been taken into the care of the Forensic Pathology Services‚ he added.
