GARDEN ROUTE NEWS FLASH - Marc Rodgers, NSRI Plettenberg Bay station commander, confirmed the rescue of an 80-year-old woman on Friday following a fall.

“At 13:24 on Friday  March 17, NSRI Plettenberg Bay duty crew responded following a request for assistance at Sanctuary, reportedly on a beach path, where an 80-year-old female from Plettenberg Bay had fallen while walking. Assistance was reportedly only required for her husband to get her to their car in the parking lot,” said Rodgers.

A MedLife ambulance was activated.

“On NSRI's arrival on the scene, as a precautionary measure, NSRI medics treated the female for a suspected stroke (or mild seizure) and she was handed into the care of paramedics and transported to hospital by ambulance in a stable condition.”
