Busy weekend conducting mountain rescues

20 December 2021: It’s been a busy weekend for the Cape Town Western Cape Department of Health EMS/AMS rescue helicopter. Four multi-disciplinary mountain rescues and two inter-facility transfers from Ceres & Robertson Provincial to Tygerberg Hospital. Yesterday two mountain rescues were conducted on Lion’s Head & Newlands Ravine respectively. Earlier today the rescue helicopter was dispatched to Fountain Ravine on Table Mountain for an injured hiker that fell & sustained multiple injuries. Additional technical rescue teams & equipment was inserted to the patient as this was a specialised technical rescue due to the location of the patient. Whilst busy with this rescue a second call came in, to which the rescue helicopter was dispatched for another mountain rescue in Sandy Bay.
