A KwaZulu-Natal fisherman was left seriously injured after he was pulled into the sea by a fish he was trying to catch at High Rock in Chakas Rock.
IPSS Medical Rescues said the incident happened early on Saturday.
They said they received reports of a fisherman in progress of drowning.
When they arrived, it was established that a fisherman had hooked a fish and was in the process of landing the catch, when a wave knocked the man and swept him off the rocks and into the sea.
IPSS said a fellow fisherman rushed to the man’s aid and managed to get him back onto the rocks. Unfortunately, the fisherman had already suffered serious injuries.
He was taken to a local medical facility.
IPSS hailed the fellow fisherman who did a great job in rescuing the man.
