Incident at Semaphore Breakwater

Dear Semaphore Member ,

Unfortunately we had a major incident at the Semaphore Breakwater Friday 25th March , our Patrol recovered an unconscious mid 20’s male from the water at approx 3.30pm and commenced CPR , but unfortunately the male did not regain consciousness.

Emergency services & SLSSA were quickly on the scene to support our Patrol including our SLSSA State Chaplin “Bandy Edwards” & Glenelg SLSC Psychologist Tony Davis , who spoke to all members involved on the day.

Police Statements were conducted with all members of our Patrol under Parental Supervision with our under 18 members , SLSSA were also able to be-brief with all Patrol Members who were involved with the Recovery.

If any Club Member feels the need to speak to anybody on how they feel about this unfortunate incident they can contact Bandy Edwards on 0438-523-158 or myself on 0417-478-512 for counselling assistance or further information.

An optional information session for all members involved in the incident along with their family/parents or support person will be held at the Club on Friday 1st April at 6.30pm.
