A paratrooper who made a crash landing after parachuting into Loftus Versveld stadium for the presidential inauguration on Saturday, has been taken to 1 Military Hospital for a check-up.
The paratrooper was one of four who parachuted into the stadium to hand over the preamble to President Cyril Ramaphosa.
While coming in, the soldier crashed into a soft-shell mortar launcher on display just before the stage.
Brigadier-General Mafi Mgobozi told News24 that the soldier’s condition was fine, but that he has been taken to 1 Military Hospital in Tshwane for a check-up.
At least two soldiers have collapsed on the field while standing at attention in the sun. One of the soldiers was immobilised and stretchered off in a head brace. Both were taken out of the stadium by the SA Military Health Service.
