Rescue teams were sent on a wild goose chase on Saturday, after a radio-controlled micro-light toy plane was mistaken for the real thing, paramedics said.

"After three hours of searching for the micro-light aircraft that allegedly crashed, rescue crews discovered that the person who reported the crash, mistook a radio controlled micro-light toy for a real micro-light aircraft," said Santi Steinmann.

The rescue teams had been searching in the Richards Bay area.
