Sailors injured after explosion on ship

By Kaveel Singh

 

Paramedics had to fly on board a Port Net helicopter to reach two sailors who sustained severe burns after an explosion on a ship, paramedic services said.

 

Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha on Sunday said paramedics flew out to a vessel about 11.3km out to sea off Richards Bay.

 

“Paramedics [were] hoisted down onto the deck of the vessel to stabilise the injured before hoisting them back up to the helicopter. The advanced life support paramedic worked fervently to stabilise the injured in flight to a Richards Bay hospital before they were handed over to a specialised trauma team for further treatment.”
