SPRINGFIELD PARK – A man was seriously injured after he plummeted off the roof of a six story building located at an industrial park in Beechfield Crescent this morning.
The man who was suspected of trespassing had allegedly hidden from security guards yesterday. While trying to escape this morning, the man tied his jacket to the roof of the warehouse and in an attempt to climb down, fell approximately six stories to the ground. Unable to walk, the man crawled to the gate of the building where he flagged down an armed security officer, asking for help.
The assistance of the KwaZulu Natal Emergency Service was requested and the suspect was handed over to the SAPS.
