Johannesburg - Two teens have died at an initiation school in Makwaneng, Amalia, North West police said on Sunday.

On Friday, the 16-year-old started vomiting after drinking water. He then collapsed and died, said Colonel Emelda Setlhako.

The next day, a 17-year-old complained of stomach cramps after eating and was later declared dead by emergency services.

The remaining initiates were taken to a hospital in Schweizer-Reneke, said Setlhako.

No arrests had been made. - Sapa
