North West – A man believed to be in his 30s was killed after a wall collapsed on him near the Orkney area. IT is understood that this IS part of the earthquake and the area is between Klerksdorp and 6KM from the Epic Centre.
ER24 Spokesperson Werner Vermaak says, “It is an old mining area where the man was walking next to a building and the wall collapsed on top of him, emergency services found him laying half-way under the rubble and unfortunately there was nothing they could do for him.”
The man was declared on the scene. Bystanders at the scene managed to get away quickly and none got injured. Vermaak says no-one else was injured on the scene, however they are still searching the area with the local emergency services to determine if there are any other injuries.
