Durban – Two people have survived a light airplane crash after making an emergency landing on a beach in Virginia, north of Durban, on Saturday afternoon, paramedics said.  

Crisis Medical spokesperson, Kyle van Reenen, said shortly after 16:30 they found a light aircraft on the sand along the Durban north shoreline. 

“Luckily the pilot and co-pilot did not sustain any injuries in the ordeal and were both checked out and given a clean bill of health on the scene,” he said. 

The reason behind the emergency landing was still unclear.
