A German tourist slipped and fell about 70m at Lisbon Falls in Mpumalanga on Wednesday afternoon 21 August 2019. She was brought successfully to the surface with rib fractures but was in a stable condition. She was transported to the hospital on Wednesday night.
Emer-G-Med spokesperson Martin Jeffrey said the woman fell into a ravine. He said paramedics were not able to get to her on foot and had to wait for rope technicians to arrive.
Before her rescue, a doctor was lowered to the tourist, but Jeffrey said the woman was further down than expected. Initially, it was thought she had fallen about 40m.
