Spokesperson for the NSRI Craig Lambinon said “during an on going search the female, 50-year-old Suzette van Vuuren from Cullinan, Pretoria was found by the Metro Red Cross Helicopter.”
According to Lambinon they found that van Vuuren was exhausted, dehydrated and suffering from possible heat stroke. Following re-hydration treatment, she was walked back to the road and reunited with her friend.
