When ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene shortly after 11H00, they found the fire brigade busy with an extrication. Upon further assessment, it was found that two people were entrapped and had to be extricated using the jaws of life.
Unfortunately, one of the patients sustained fatal injuries and was declared dead on the scene. The other patient sustained serious injuries. Another patient was found walking on the scene. He had sustained minor injuries.
ER24 transported the patients to hospital for further medical care.
