ON Sunday morning Netcare 911 paramedics responded to a call as two men were injured in Giba Gorge, in the Upper Highway area.

Netcare 911 paramedics and the Police Search and Rescue unit arrived at the scene and had to hike down a steep slope for about 500 metres before they got to the first man.

After the patient was examined they found that he had sustained a penetrating wound and he tragically died before paramedics arrival.

After the team hiked a further 500 meters along a path, they found another patient lying near a river with a critical penetrating wound.

“The patient was stabilised at the scene and after the Netcare 911 advanced Life support paramedic placed him on a ventilator, the police air wing skilfully airlifted them back to where the ambulance was parked,” said Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha. “ The patient was loaded into the amb ulance and transported to hospital under the constant care of a Netcare 911 Emergency Care for the specialised care that he required.”
