Durban - Two men were injured, one of them critically, when they fell from scaffolding in the Tongaat CBD, KwaZulu-Natal, on Monday, paramedics said.

Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha said they were working when they fell several metres and landed on an elevated area.

“Paramedics and firemen immobilised the patients in specialised stretchers before using a rope system to lower them to the road level.”

The cause of their fall was not immediately known and police were investigating, Botha said.
