A KwaZulu-Natal fisherman was left with minor injuries after the fishing boat he was on overturned off Virginia Beach, Durban North, on Thursday morning.

Shawn Herbst, Netcare 911’s spokesperson, said reports indicate that a fisherman got into difficulty after getting too close to the back line, eventually resulting in the boat overturning as it got closer to the shore.

He said the elderly man was assessed and found to have suffered minor injuries. He was taken to hospital.
