DURBAN – A man, believed to be in his 40s, was killed this morning after part of a building collapsed on him on Audley Road in Durban.
ER24 paramedics along with fire services arrived on the scene and found a number of workers informing them that the men had been demolishing the building when part of it collapsed, burying one of the workers.
Paramedics and fire services rushed to rummage through the rubble to remove bricks and concrete that had covered the man.
After some time, they managed to free the body of the man from beneath a large pile of rubble.
Paramedics discovered that he had already succumbed to multiple fatal injuries and was declared dead on the scene.
Local authorities will be investigating further.
