A 29-year-old man is in a critical condition after falling about six meters from a tree onto a palisade fence at a house in Valhalla on Thursday.
ER24 spokesperson Ineke van Huyssteen said when paramedics arrived at the scene, they found the man lying in the garden.
“Upon further assessment, paramedics found that the man had sustained numerous injuries and was in a critical condition,” she said.
She said the man was freed from the fence by the Tshwane fire department before being stabilised and taken to hospital.
“It is believed that the man was working in the garden,” she said.
In an incident yesterday, an elderly woman died after she was apparently crushed by a tree at her Knoppieslaagte residence near Centurion.
Paramedics arrived on the scene at around 14:30 to find the woman lying next to the fallen tree, according to ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring.
“The woman was assessed, but unfortunately found to have already succumbed to her numerous injuries.”
