A MAN in his forties died after he allegedly jumped off a cliff at the Inchanga Mountains in the Monte Seal area near Hillcrest on Friday.

According to Netcare 911 paramedic Athlenda Mathe, when paramedics arrived on scene, it was too dark to conduct a search and the search was called off.

“On Saturday morning at around 7am paramedics went back to the scene and began with the search, the Netcare 911 Rescue team worked together with the Police Search and Rescue Unit,” he said.

“Paramedics and the police clambered down the mountain and found the man. Tragically, the man had already died due to the extensive injuries he sustained.”

Police are investigating the matter.
