Man injured on train tracks

Comment on this story


Johannesburg - A woman was injured at the Unibell station in Belhar in Cape Town on Sunday after allegedly trying to board a moving train, paramedics said.

“According to bystanders, the other occupants on the train had tried to assist the woman into the coach, but they lost their grip of her and she fell between the platform and the train,” said ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson.

The woman was hospitalised with suspected internal injuries.

In another incident, a man was injured after he was reportedly pushed in front of a moving train at a station in Kraaifontein.

Jackson said the man fell on the tracks and sustained a deep cut on his head.

“It is still not precisely clear as to what took place... As soon as the bystanders saw what had happened they shouted to the conductor and he managed to stop the train,” said Jackson.

Paramedics treated the man on the scene before transporting him to Tygerberg hospital. - Sapa
