3 May 2017, Durban: At around 11h00 on Wednesday morning, the Netcare 911 rescue officer was travelling from Umhlanga to Durban on the N2 near the M25 off ramp.
As he was driving he noticed a dust cloud ahead of him and when he came closer noticed it was a vehicle that overturned.
Reports from the driver, an elderly gentleman, indicated that he was travelling to the airport in the northbound lane when a car with two young people tried to push him from behind.
The man then pulled to the left and as the sports car came next to him they swerved their vehicle towards him.
With having a fright the man lost control of his vehicle and overturned, the wreckage coming to rest on its roof on the centre median with the man trapped inside.
The Netcare 911 rescue officer ran over to the car and managed to break the rear window to gain access to the driver. Fortunately, the man had his seatbelt on and escaped uninjured, but very traumatised.
The rescue officer assisted the man out of the wreckage and then arranged for a towing service to remove the vehicle. With the man being stranded the Netcare 911 rescue officer arranged for his son to be picked up from the airport and then took him to his residence.
