A Ballito cook who did not return home on Monday after going to shooting practice was safely located in a remote area that became inaccessible after heavy rain.
Spokesman for the SA Response Unit (Rusa) Prem Balram said Steven Kruger, 36, a chef at a restaurant at the Ballito Lifestyle Center, was found Tuesday morning during an aerial search of a nearby construction site.
Balram said the search was for Krugers. The family asked Rusa for help when he did not return home on Monday evening after going to shooting training with his shotgun.
His partner, former Miss India SA KZN Suvina Mahadaw, appealed on Facebook to Help her locate Kruger, who left home at 5:30 p.m.
Balram said the helicopter crew took off that morning because the area was inaccessible on Monday evening due to heavy rain.
“The pilot and crew spotted Kruger’s white Mazda 2 in an opening.
” The vehicle was stuck in the sand. He was standing outside the vehicle and waving his arms for help. “
Balram said Kruger was dehydrated and had a back injury.
” His vehicle will be recovered at a later date. ”
