Howick - A man was seriously injured and a woman suffered moderate injuries when they fell from the Karkloof Falls near Howick in KwaZulu-Natal, paramedics said on Sunday.

At 4pm on Saturday afternoon, Netcare 911 paramedics responded to reports of a person who had fallen off the Karkloof Falls in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, Netcare 911 spokesman Shawn Herbst said.

On arrival, another private ambulance service was already in attendance. Reports from the scene indicated that a man and a woman, both aged in their mid 30s, had fallen off the small Karkloof Falls.

Both people were pulled out the water by members of the public who had witnessed the fall. The man had sustained serious injuries and required advanced life support intervention. The woman had sustained moderate injuries.

Both patients were transported to hospital by two other private ambulance services for further treatment. All necessary authorities were on the scene to investigate, Herbst said.
