Cape Town - A man froze to death in Kuils River, in Cape Town, on Wednesday morning, paramedics said.
“The police had found two men huddled under wet cardboard boxes, unresponsive, freezing cold and sopping wet,” ER24 spokeswoman Vanessa Jackson.
When paramedics arrived one of the men was dead. The other was in a critical condition, with a dangerously low body temperature, and was taken to the Tygerberg Hospital, she said.
On Tuesday, the City of Cape Town warned of a cold front, which would bring cold and wet conditions, with gale-force north-westerly winds, between Cape Point and Cape Agulhas.
“The weather warning issued indicates that heavy rain is expected over the Cape Metropole overnight on 27 August and 28
August 2013,” the city's disaster risk management spokesman Wilfred Solomons-Johannes said in a statement.
“We urge residents to exercise caution,” he said.
