Cape Town - A man was trapped inside a cave which collapsed in Hout Bay, the City of Cape Town disaster management centre said on Thursday.
Spokesman Wilfred Solomons-Johannes said the cave behind the Chapman's Peak Hotel collapsed on four “vagrants” after 11pm on Wednesday night.
“The other three vagrants evacuated to safety when they realised... (what was) happening and unfortunately the other man got trapped,” he said in a statement.
Emergency crews were dispatched to the scene, but could not rescue him due to dangerous weather conditions overnight associated with heavy rains and gusting wind.
Solomons-Johannes said paramedics would resume the search on Thursday morning on “the assumption that he is still alive”. - Sapa
