When they arrived, it was established that a fisherman had hooked a fish and was in the process of landing the catch, when a wave knocked the man and swept him off the rocks and into the sea.

IPSS said a fellow fisherman rushed to the man's aid and managed to get him back onto the rocks. Unfortunately, the fisherman had already suffered serious injuries.

He was taken to a local medical facility.

IPSS hailed the fellow fisherman who did a great job in rescuing the man.
