Tourists have packed Durban’s beach hotels to the rafters, while sea rescue units and police say beachgoers are toeing the line this season.
Apart from an incident at Richards Bay, where three children were rescued from drowning by the National Sea Rescue Institute on Christmas Day, the KwaZulu-Natal coastline has seemingly been incident-free.
The three children were admitted to The Bay Hospital and were in serious, but stable, condition.
