3 children die in Doornfontein wall collapse
JOHANNESBURG - Three children have been killed in a wall collapse in Doornfontein, in Johannesburg.
Officials say the children, aged between three and 10, were playing near the wall earlier on Monday when it caved in on Davies Street.
They died on the scene.
Emergency Services Robert Mulaudzi said: “Our resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful and they were later confirmed dead on the scene. At the moment, we’re trying to remove some unstable walls so that we can prevent the second collapse of that building.”
Mulaudzi added that: “We just want to urge our motorists who are driving around Doornfontein to avoid Davies Street as it has been closed while we’re working on site.”
He says the disused building was declared unsafe for inhabitation but illegal structures were erected inside.
