Rieghard Janse van Rensburg, NSRI Jeffreys Bay station commander, said:
At 10h05, Friday, 24th May, NSRI Jeffreys Bay duty crew were activated following a request for assistance from a group of horse riders, on an outride, reporting a female fallen from a horse and injured on the beach at The Gap near to Kabeljous.
Our NSRI ATV (All Terrain Vehicle) was dispatched and Private Care ambulance services were activated.
On arrival on the scene our NSRI medics treated a local lady, from Patensie, aged in her early 30’s, suffering a fractured arm, sustained when she fell off a horse while riding.
She was stabilised and we used our NSRI ATV to transport her off the beach to the waiting ambulance at the parking area and she was taken into the care of Private Care paramedics and transported to hospital in a stable condition by ambulance for further treatment.
