The body of a woman in her 50s was found on Wednesday morning at Voëlklip near Herolds Bay after her car reportedly crashed down the cliff on Tuesday night, according to Netwerk24.

Acting Southern Cape police spokesperson Sergeant Chris Spies, says no foul play is suspected.

“Police were at the scene and rescue workers of the Metro through the night and the NSRI was already on the scene at 5am this morning,” said Spies.

“No body or bodies have been removed yet and sea conditions are not favourable to them at this time. Once they are, the police divers will try to go into the water to investigate where there is movement,” he added.

This is the second tragedy after a recent accident leading to the deaths of a mother and two children in the same area.

The identity of the woman has not been made known yet.
