Near-drowning in Milnerton

While attending their year-end breakfast at a beachfront restaurant on Milnerton beach on Friday December 2, members of the District Watch group and Bassett Alarm staff were alerted to a commotion on the beach.

The response officers rushed to help a 15-year-old girl who had nearly drowned. Two lifeguards from the Milnerton Life Saving Club, Ariel Mausenbaum and Matthew Hutchison, helped rescue the teen along with the District Watch and Bassett staff members and Jeandre Votes who got her out the water.

“A big well done to the two young men for their heroic efforts and assistance. They helped with resuscitation and placed her on a drip while waiting for ambulance services to arrive,” said a post on the District Watch Facebook page.
