Tourist recovering after being attacked on Lions Head

Paramedics say a tourist is recovering in hospital after being attacked on Lion’s Head last night.

The man and his wife were hiking when the incident occurred yesterday evening.

Netcare 911’s Chris Botha says the male tourist injured his leg while attempting to fend off the attackers.

“We got a call last night at about 8pm of a person who was injured on Lion’s Head.  Apparently the tourist and his wife were at Lion’s Head when they were approached by some strangers. His wife managed to escape and call for help.”

    The city should have armed military patrolling this path from dawn until dusk. The damage done to tourism is not worth the saving on cost for not doing this.
