A twelve year old girl was found in a critical condition, partially trapped under a bakkie, late last night. It is understood that the vehicle was traveling on the R28 near Westonaria when it overturned several times, ejecting the twelve year old from the vehicle.

ER24 Spokesperson Werner Vermaak said Paramedics from ER24 that arrived on the scene found the girl trapped under the overturned vehicle from her waist down.

Vermaak said she was in a serious condition and presented with multiple injuries.

Vermaak said Paramedics also found a man, believed to be the grandfather as well as another girl, still in the vehicle.

Vermaak said they were rescued from the vehicle while the local fire department used specialised equipment to stabilise the vehicle and lift it from the twelve year old.

Vermaak said a medical helicopter was called to the scene to assist with the trapped girl.

Vermaak said once freed, she was airlifted to Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital for further medical treatment.

Vermaak said the grandfather and the other girl were treated and stabilised on the scene before they were transported to a nearby hospital for further treatment.

Vermaak said both were in a stable condition.

Vermaak said although the exact cause of the incident is not yet known, the grandfather explained that he swerved for a stationary vehicle in the road when he lost control.

“Local authorities attended the incident Vermaak added.
