This afternoon Netcare 911 paramedics from Ballito rushed to the scene of an accident on the R614 near Tongaat. When paramedics arrived they found that a tractor driver had got of to do something, the tractor then ran forward and the driver tried to jump back on to stop the tractor, but landed under the wheel.

Realising the severity of the case paramedic Norman Ludick asked for the Netcare 3 helicopter with a doctor on board to assist with the patient and airlift him to hospital. Sadly despite the enormous effort from the paramedics on scene the patient died due to the severity of his injuries .
