Medevac off Port Elizabeth
On Aug 17, 2018, at 9 p.m. the NSRI Port Elizabeth duty crew was activated by the Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) following a request for medical assistance from the "DHT Lotus", which was fully laden passing the South African coastline headed to Singapore, and requiring a 38 year old Indian crewman to be medically evacuated to hospital for an eye injury sustained from unknown causes. The lifeboat "Spirit of Toft" was launched and rendevoused with the ship, with restricted manouverabilty, 12 miles South of Cape Recife in heavy sea swells of three to four meters. An NSRI rescue swimmer was transferred onto the ship, involving a climb with an 11 meter freeboard. The patient, in a stable condition, was secured into a safety harness and transferred onto the "Spirit of Toft". The transfer of the patient took 45 minutes in the heavy seas. He was brought into the Port of Port Elizabeth and he has been transported to hospital in a stable condition.
