[CALETONVILLE] – Child hospitalised following freak accident.
A 9-year-old girl was hospitalised this afternoon following a freak accident at a school in Carletonville.
ER24 medics arrived on the scene at 15h04 to find that a 9-year-old girl had impaled her hand on a palisade fence. Members of the public had gathered and were assisting the young patient.
Medics utilised a grinder that had been brought by a member of the public and began cutting the fence.
After a short time, medics removed the section of the fence, freeing the girl. The patient was treated for her injury and thereafter transported to a nearby hospital for further care.
It is believed that the girl had attempted to climb over the fence when she slipped and fell.
The exact details are not yet known.
