Garrith Jamieson, of ALS Paramedics, said when they arrived at the scene together with the Durban Fire Department they were unable to recover the bodies due to inclement weather.

By Tuesday afternoon the Durban Fire Department managed to extricate the bodies from the rubble.

“Unfortunately three people have lost their lives – a mother believed to be in her 60s and the two daughters (believed to be between the ages of 20 and 30) were declared deceased.”

He said the scene was still active and SAPS officials were on the scene. | IOL
