Durban - Rescue services have recovered the lifeless body of 10-year-old Mnotho Mlotshwa, who had been trapped in the rubble after his house collapsed on Tuesday.
The fierce Durban storms caused a low-cost house in Umlazi to collapse.
A woman, believed to be an aunt of the boy, began to wail when news of the boys death spread among the distraught and shaken community.
Mnotho's body was found trapped beneath tree logs, an old lawnmower and heavy debris.
His rescue required a considered effort from the community and rescue services, who have been working on the scene for at least 6 hours.
