Yesterday afternoon NSRI were called out to the Storms River Mouth at the Tsitsikama Nature Reserve following reports of a 74-year-old man who had fallen on rocks and had been reported unconscious. Baycare ambulance services, SA National Park Rangers and members of the Mountain Club of South Africa also responded.
Spokesperson for the NSRI Craig Lambinon said “on arrival on scene the 74-year-old male was stabilised, due to his condition which was serious, it was decided to call in a Charlie Flight 15 Squadron airforce helicopter for Port Elizabeth. A Netcare 911 paramedic accompanied that helicopter, on arrival on scene the man was hoisted onto the helicopter and taken to a local Southern Cape hospital.”
It was reported that the man later passed away.
