GEORGE NEWS - A 30 year old man survived a fall from a cliff in Victoria Bay on Saturday.

Craig Lambinon, NSRI Spokesman, says the man survived a 10m fall of a cliff face. According to Lambinon the man was airlifted to hospital in a serious but stable condition.

He said the man was helped by NSRI Wilderness, EMS and George Fire and Rescue and they were assisted by a private doctor who happened to be on holiday.

“The doctor initiated medical treatment. The man was first airlifted out of the barely accessible area before taken to hospital by helicopter.”

Athane Scholtz, George Municipality media liaison officer, says it was a joint operation between NSRI and George Fire and Rescue.
