At 11H14 Sunday morning Netcare 911 responded to reports of a patient that had slipped and fell in a mountainous area in Hekpoort.

Reports from the scene indicate that an adult female believed to be in her sixties was on a hiking trail with a group of people when she lost her footing and fell sustaining a fracture to her lower leg.

The patient was treated on scene and with the assistance of Mountain Rescue the woman was carried to an awaiting ambulance.

The patient was then transported to hospital for further treatment.
