1 April 2017, Randpark Ridge: At 04h00 on Friday morning Netcare 911 paramedics and the fire department responded to a collision on the N1 near Beyers Naude Drive Randpark Ridge.

Reports from the scene indicate that the vehicle veered off the road, crashed through the barriers, and came to rest next to a concrete pillar with the driver still trapped in the wreckage.

Randburg Firemen and the Netcare 911 Rescue officer worked tirelessly to extricate the patient using the Jaws of Life while the medics stabilised him.



The critically injured man was immobilised on a trauma board before they removed him from the wreckage to prevent further spinal injury.

The Netcare 911 advanced life support paramedic placed the man on a ventilator before transporting him to a specialised hospital for the care that he required.
