A man is in a serious condition after he lost control of a tractor and plunged into a river in the Dududu area near Scottburgh. Reports indicate that the man lost control of the farm implement on a gravel road, he veered off the road and hurtled down a steep embankment coming to rest in a river about two hundred meters from the road . The patient appears to have been ejected from the tractor and presumed to have landed under one of the wheels.

Netcare 911 paramedics arrived at the scene and found the man on the back of a bakkie in a critical condition. After he was stabilized and deftly immobilized on scene they transported the patient to the Netcare Kingsway hospital for the care that he required.
