The SA Police Services and uMhlathuze Fire and Rescue Services also responded.
NSRI Richards Bay responded and while responding to the scene reports were received that no one was injured in the incident.
On our arrival on-scene we found a light aircraft that had successfully landed on the beach following an emergency landing with a local couple onboard who were not injured and they required no assistance.
It appears that the propeller of the single engined light aircraft fell off during flight.
CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) have been alerted.
