Two Critical After Scaffolding Collapses in Sandton

Two construction workers were critically injured when a scaffolding they were on collapsed in Sandton on Tuesday, paramedics said.

They were taken to a nearby private hospital, ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said.

The cause of the collapse was not yet known.

A Gautrain security guard who was outside the construction site, on the corner of Rivonia and West streets, at the time of the accident, said he did not suspect anything had happened until he heard sirens.
