A young man has died in a freak accident after the wall he was busy demolishing collapsed and fell on him.
The drama unfolded in Scott Street, Gardens, in Cape Town on Thursday afternoon.
ER24’s Russell Meiring says paramedics were called to the scene and found the 20-year-old man lying next to the collapsed wall surrounded by members of the public.
But paramedics immediately observed there were no signs of life.
They also carried out 35 minutes of CPR and advanced life support.
The young man is believed to have been demolishing the wall when it collapsed on top of him.
