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.
It is understood that she tried to escape the violence from demonstrators by climbing onto a perspex roof, which collapsed.
Authorities say that she fell three meters to the ground level, while two other people sustained serious injuries.
Rescue Care’s Ceron Meadows: “It looked like a see-through ceiling. We have no idea how they got onto the roof but they were that desperate to get away from the protesters that that’s where they landed up. I think there were too many people running on the roof that she hit a weak point and came through.”
