Man injured on hiking trail assisted by NSRI

Marc Rodgers, NSRI Plettenberg Bay station commander, said: At 17h52, Sunday, 09 June, NSRI Plettenberg Bay duty crew were activated following a request for assistance from a family from Humansdorp hiking on the Robberg Nature Reserve trail reporting the father to be suffering exhaustion.

Our sea rescue craft Leonard Smith and Ray Farnham were launched while Cape Nature rangers and an NSRI shore crew responded to the car park to hike to the location.

On arrival on the scene the father, accompanied by his wife and his 2 daughters, was treated for exhaustion and he was secured to a Stokes basket stretcher and hiked to our sea rescue craft beached at The Island.

The man and his wife were transported aboard our sea rescue craft to our sea rescue station and the 2 daughters were hiked out of the trail to the car park and they drove our sea rescue base where they collected their parents and no further assistance was required.
