A 27-year-old woman has died after she fell from a mountain in Rustenburg in the North West.
It’s understood paramedics and local fire services arrived on the scene on Friday where they were told by a group of friends at the top of the mountain that a woman who was with them at the time, apparently slipped and fell several metres.
Paramedics say they managed to find the woman and used rope equipment to abseil to her location and hoist her body back up the mountain as they could not access the slope from the bottom.
ER24’s Werner Vermaak says the exact circumstances surrounding the incident is not yet known, but local authorities were on scene for further investigations.
“By the time they found her, they found that she sustained fatal injuries during the fall. Sadly, there was nothing more they could do for her and she was declared dead on the scene. Unfortunately they could not recover the body during the night due to dangerous conditions and poor visibility.”
