Our heartfelt condolences

We are deeply saddened by the news of the passing of Richard Aschenborn, former AMS employee. Our thoughts are with his family during this difficult time.

Richards Bay emergency helicopter dispatched to Sodwana Bay

The Richards Bay KwaZulu-Natal Department of Health EMS/AMS emergency helicopter was dispatched to a hot response at Sodwana Bay for a near drowning during the Easter Weekend. It was reported that a spear fisherman had blacked out under water and was pulled into the boat by his friends who accompanied him during his expedition and immediately started CPR. The patient was successfully revived and after full assessment and stabilisation was airlifted in a stable condition to Ngwelezana Hospital.
