NETCARE 911 paramedics and their rescue unit responded to a man who fell from a tree in Frazer Road last week.

Paramedic Chris Botha said that the man was tree felling when he fell about eight metres to the ground.

“Paramedics found the man on the ground with severe injuries and in a serious condition. The patient was stabilised at the scene and then transported to a specialised hospital in Durban under the care of an advanced life support paramedic,” he added.
