A man was killed when his light aircraft crashed in a game reserve in Herbertsdale, near Mossel Bay, in the Western Cape on Wednesday, paramedics said.

The cause of the crash was being investigated.


In a separate incident, two people survived with minor injuries after a small aircraft crashed in Midrand on Wednesday morning, paramedics said.

The aircraft was found lying upside-down in an open veld near the airport, ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said.

They sustained minor injuries.

Both men were transported to Sunninghill Hospital for further assessment.
