A man and wife were injured in an
accident when the bike they were traveling on had an accident en route to
Harrismith from Richards Bay where
they were attending an event for the weekend.
ER24 Spokesperson Vannessa Jackson
said the man in his early 50's was unable to regain control of the bike and
both of the riders came off. They had sustained severe injuries and paramedics
were called out to the scene.
Jackson said upon
arrival, it was found that the 47 year old woman had sustained multiple bumps
and bruises as well as suspected back and neck injuries, and she was
transported to St. Anne's hospital by ambulance for further care. ER24
paramedics rapidly initiated stabilising treatment on her husband who had
sustained more severe injuries in the form of multiple broken bones and
possible internal injuries.
She added that while they continued to
take care of the man, they called in the assistance of AER24 which
would then rapidly transport the patient to St. Anne's hospital. The patient
remains in a serious condition in hospital.
The details surrounding what took
place leading to this crash are still under investigation by local
