Pretoria - Paramedics are searching for the body of a man after he fell from a boat at the Bon Accord Dam, north of Pretoria, on Saturday, paramedics said.

EMS spokesperson Johan Pieterse said the man fell into the water at about 15:00.
Information around the incident was still vague.

"The rescue team need to find his body before it is dark, because it is too dangerous for the divers [to continue]," Pieterse said.

He said if the man was not found on Saturday, the search would continue on Sunday morning.
