Two British nationals sustained critical injuries following a crash with a high performance glider just North of Tempe Airport outside Bloemfontein earlier this afternoon.
The cause of the accident is still unknown at this stage, but the glider crashed through a
game fence on the farm where the accident happened. One patient was airlifted and the other was transported by road ambulance to Life Rosepark Hospital in Bloemfontein for further care.
Paramedics from various services joined hands in the rescue operation. The cause of the accident will be investigated by the SAPS and the South African Civil Aviation Authority.
