UMDLOTI M27 CRASH LEAVES TODDLER FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE AFTER BEING CATAPULTED THROUGH WINDSCREEN

This morning at 08h05 Netcare 911 paramedics responded to a head-on collision on the M27 in Umdloti. Exact detail to the cause of the crash is still speculative and will form part of the South African Police investigation.

Paramedics arrived at the scene, found that a two-year-old-toddler had been ejected from the vehicle, and sustained life-threatening injuries.

Paramedics placed the little boy on a ventilator before he was airlifted to a specialised hospital for the care that he required.

The mother was found to have sustained serious injuries medics treated her at the scene before they transported her under the constant care of a Netcare911 advanced life support paramedic to a Durban hospital for further treatment.
