Homeless man saves dog walker from drowning in Sea Point

...passersby attempted to reward Jerome for saving Martin’s life, but he refused to take their money; according to him, he was just doing the right thing by helping Martin.

A local by the name of Julian is searching for a homeless man who recently saved the life of his brother in Sea Point.

Julian’s brother Martin is a professional dog walker who was taking a stroll in Sea Point when he slipped on some rocks and became trapped.

Martin’s legs became wedged between two rocks, and he was unable to free himself.

High tide had begun pushing in while Martin was taking his walk, and the water began rising as he struggled to free his leg.

When he realised that he was in danger of drowning he began crying out for help.

Jerome, a homeless man, walked past and heard Martin’s cries. He looked down and saw Martin trapped and helpless and quickly went to his aid, helping him keep his head above the water.

Jerome helped keep Martin calm while rescue services arrived to free him.

Martin’s trapped leg was broken as a result of the incident and he was rushed to hospital, where he underwent a four-hour-long surgery.

According to reports, passersby attempted to reward Jerome for saving Martin’s life, but he refused to take their money; according to him, he was just doing the right thing by helping Martin.

If you know who Jerome may be, please contact CapeTalk with any information.
