Some time back we received a AAA Response Activation from a member requesting assistance at his residence in the outer west area of Durban, Kwazulu Natal. He reported that his elderly father had a self-inflicted gunshot wound and required urgent medical attention. After confirming the precise location of the incident we dispatched Netcare 911. Netcare arrived on the scene within a short period but unfortunately, the man had succumbed to his injuries and he was declared deceased. 

We immediately contacted SAPS as they were required on scene due to circumstances of the unfortunate death. Although there were delays from local SAPS,  I was able to receive additional support by escalating to SAPS Durban Central. SAPS arrived on scene to complete the required procedures.

Necessary grief counselling and support have been offered to our member and his family. Our condolences to all those affected during this difficult time.
