NSRI Open Third Survival Swimming Centre | eNCA

South Africa has thousands of kilometers of beaches, and in rich neighborhoods, hundreds if not thousands of swimming pools.

But alarmingly, only one in every seven South Africans knows how to swim.

According to the National Sea Rescue Institute, about 1500 people drown each year — an average of four people per day. This is why the institute has opened the third of its NSRI Survival Swimming Centres.

After launching similar facilities in the Western and Eastern Cape, KwaZulu Natal communities can now also benefit.

The newest facility was recently opened at a school on the KZN south coast and will service the greater Port Shepstone area.

Let’s find out more from the NSRI’s Drowning Prevention Manager Andrew Ingram.
