DURBAN WOMAN FALLS TO HER DEATH!

A woman has
died and two others seriously injured after falling from the roof of a mall in
Inanda Road, Springfield Park, outside Durban, whilst running away from violent
protesters.According
to Garrith Jamieson, operations director at Rescue Care, the woman, presumed to
be in her 40s, fell three metres, after stepping through a perspex part of the
roof on Monday morning.Jamieson
said the woman sustained serious injuries and was declared deceased on the
scene.”Two
other gentlemen who were also running on the roof fell and sustained serious
injuries. They were escorted by SAPS to an area where a patient had fallen from
the roof. They were then stabilised by Rescue Care paramedics before being
transported to a nearby hospital for the further care that they required.”The
situation is extremely volatile around the area as there are a lot of protests
happening. Metro police and South African Police Service officers are in
attendance and attending to the matter,” said Jamieson.Police
spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Thulani Zwane said the situation in the area is
volatile and dangerous as residents are protesting.Zwane said
protests began on Sunday night, though it’s still unclear why the residents are
angry.He
confirmed that they have received reports about the woman falling to her death
and have opened an inquest docket.”We
don’t have more information as to why the woman was on the roof. But we have
been informed that she and others were fleeing from violent protesters and we
are establishing if that is true.”Since
the protests began on Sunday night, many shops and businesses were looted and
some vandalised and set alight. There are other unconfirmed reports that two
people were shot at with live ammunition by shop owners as the mob were looting
shops. One of the two people was declared dead and another taken to hospital.”For
now we are also establishing if the two were shot at by shop owners. The
situation remains violent and dangerous and our members are on the scene to
ensure that calm is restored,” said Zwane.SOURCE:
