A fifteen-year-old Cape Town teen was tragically killed on Tuesday afternoon after he was hit by two vehicles in Lansdowne, Cape Town.
Paramedics were swift and on the accident scene at 2:48 pm, arriving at the corners of Imam Haron and Hamilton Roads to attend to the victim, reports IOL.
The boy was discovered lying in the middle of the road but was quickly aided by an off-duty ER24 medic and a nurse who attempted to administer CPR.
Unfortunately, it was a little too late as the teen succumbed to his wounds.
“ER24 medics continued CPR and performed several advanced life support interventions.
“Unfortunately, despite the medics best efforts, the boy succumbed to his injuries.
“This incident’s details are not known, but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations,” said ER24’s Russel Meiring.
This incident is only one of many tragic accidents to have taken place on the Western Cape’s roads in the last 24-hours, with a major collision near Villiersdorp sending shockwaves through the province.
According to EWN, five people have died, and 27 others have been injured in the collision between a vehicle and a trick early Tuesday morning. The incident apparently occurred when an SUV was attempting to overtake another vehicle before colliding with the oncoming truck.
