Ballito building site collapse – one dead – one critically injured
a Building site behind the Ballito Junction mall was the scene of chaos this week when a trench collapsed where men were working.
“Two of the men managed to free themselves, one of whom privately went to the hospital,” according to Paul Herbst of IPSS Medical Rescue.
Before paramedics arrived the other workers were trying to dig out the trapped men. Rescue workers came and managed to save one of the men, but the other was declared deceased.
The cause of the collapse is being investigated.
