Ian Klopper, NSRI Kommetjie station commander, said:
At 17h16, Wednesday, 05th April, NSRI Kommetjie duty crew were activated after an NSRI Kommetjie crew member happened upon a scene near to Longbeach, Kommetjie, where a 67 year old local woman had suffered a hip injury after falling while walking her dog on a leash.
It appears that her dog had bolted to greet another dog causing the lady to be pulled suddenly by the leash and falling over.
NSRI Kommetjie activated our NSRI station advanced life support paramedic to respond to the scene and on arrival he found the lady suffering a suspected leg or hip fracture.
She was stabilised and a CMR (Cape Medical Response) ambulance and CMR response vehicle were summoned to attend and the lady has been transported to hospital in a serious but stable condition by CMR ambulance.
