Localised flooding in Nonoti and KwaDukuza, KwaZulu-Natal, caused three cars to be swept off a bridge on Saturday, leading to the death of a 28-year-old woman on the north coast

The woman’s body was found in a tree.

“Unfortunately, a 28-year-old female lost her footing and got caught in the strong flowing water and was swept away,” IPSS Medical Rescue spokesperson Paul Herbst said.

Herbst said multiple calls were received about two of the vehicles that were washed away.

The police’s K9 Unit and the National Sea Rescue Institute were also notified.

“Approximately one kilometre downstream, with the assistance of K9 Dante, the female’s body was located three metres up, in a tree,” Herbst said.
