A sixteen year old girl has survived a drowning at Ushaka Beach in Durban. This incident happened at about 09h30.

Reports from the scene indicate that the girl was surfing at the time when she experienced difficulty in the water.

When Netcare911 paramedics arrived on scene, they found that the girl had been pulled out of the water by her dad.

We also found lifeguards initiating Basic First Aid.

We then took over from the lifeguards and assessed the patient , continued with oxygen therapy and thereafter transported her to a nearby hospital for further medical care.
