Johannesburg - A 26-year-old man survived a gunshot wound to the head after an apparent house robbery in Bronkhorstspruit on Tuesday, paramedics said.
Netcare911 spokesperson Chris Botha said the man was in a critical condition in the Pretoria East hospital. He was believed to have been shot at his house in the outlying areas in Bronkhorstspruit and taken to a local hospital.
The hospital called Netcare paramedics for assistance.
"Paramedics were flabbergasted to find that although the man was shot in the temporal area he was still communicating with them," said Botha.
He was stabilised and transported to the Pretoria East hospital.
"He is doing very well," said Botha late on Tuesday night.
Bronkhorstspruit police could not immediately confirm the incident.
