A man, believed to be a Nigerian national living in Johannesburg, has gone missing after slipping on rocks and falling into the sea at Bakoven on Cape Town’s Atlantic seaboard, the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) said on Sunday.

NSRI Bakoven duty crew were alerted at 4.12pm on Sunday afternoon to an unconfirmed report of a suspected drowning in progress near to Beta Beach, Bakoven, NSRI Bakoven station commander Luke van Riet said.

A law enforcement officer responded to the scene to investigate, while NSRI Bakoven duty crew responded to the Bakoven sea rescue base to prepare to launch a sea rescue craft, he said.
