A woman died after she was stabbed about 50 times in Bryanston, Sandton, paramedics said on Sunday.

ER24 spokesman Werner Vermaak said the woman, in her late 30s, was found on Saturday with multiple stab wounds.

“It is understood that another woman and her child were driving along Peter Place when the child noticed the woman lying near a boom gate at an office park,” he said in a statement.

“Paramedics found the injured woman barely responsive and breathing.

“Paramedics indicated that she (the victim) lost a vast amount of blood and counted approximately 50 stab wounds on her body.”
