A man escaped injury when he made an emergency landing in his light aircraft on the R529 near Letsitele in Limpopo on Friday, paramedics said.
ER24 paramedics were called to the scene by local farmers and on arrival found the aircraft on the side of the road against a telephone pole, ER24 spokesman Russel Meiring said.
“The pilot was found walking around on the scene. Paramedics assessed the man and found that he had sustained a small laceration to his thumb. Fortunately, no serious injuries or fatalities were found on the scene.
“It is believed that the man had to perform the emergency landing after his aircraft apparently lost power. Local authorities were on the scene and will be conducting a full investigation into the matter,” Meiring said.
