A wall collapse killed three construction workers, believed to be in their 30’s, and one sustained critical injuries following yet another structural collapse in Isipingo south of Durban on the 18th of February 2019.
It’s understood the men were working at a construction site at the time of the collapse on Monday afternoon.
Rescue Care’s Garrith Jamieson said the workers were stuck under rubble after the wall collapse.
Paramedics arrived at the scene at about 5pm, where Durban Fire and Emergency Medical Rescue Services were in attendance.
“Three men, believed to be approximately 30-years-old, had sustained major injuries and there was nothing more paramedics could do for them. They were declared deceased on the scene. One man had sustained critical injuries and was stabilised on the scene before being rushed to a nearby hospital for the further care required,” said Jamieson.
The recent structural collapse at the Driehoek School in Vanderbijlpark still lingers in memory and most of us recall the numerous incidents of similar nature since 2012.
