A man believed to be in his 40s was left with injuries on Friday morning, after his car crashed off a cliff on Victoria Road in Camps Bay.
City of Cape Town law enforcement spokesperson Wayne Dyason told News24 that he was the only occupant in the car, and that he was unresponsive but breathing.
Authorities were called in by a passing motorist who spotted the vehicle lying in the rocks. The exact time of the incident is unknown at this point, due to there being no witnesses.
Arrive Alive has details on the rescue operation:
ER24 paramedics, along with Metro Rescue and Life Healthcare, arrived on the scene to find a light motor vehicle at the bottom of a small cliff lying on its side. A man was found lying trapped inside.
Metro Rescue and Fire Services had to use specialized equipment to free the patient, an operation lasting 45 minutes.
Once freed, paramedics assessed the man and found that he had sustained moderate injuries.
The man was treated for his injuries and was thereafter transported to New Somerset Hospital for further treatment.
