Horror train collision leaves one dead, scores injured
At least one man has been killed and roughly 80 others injured this morning when two trains collided at the Denver train station in Johannesburg South. ER24 paramedics, along with various services, arrived on the scene and found the wreck trains blocking the tracks completely. Bent metal and parts of the train had been spread across the scene. On assessment, paramedics discovered the driver of one of the trains had sustained fatal injuries in the collision. Nothing more could be done for the patients and he was declared dead on scene. At least eighty other patients were found on scene with injuries ranging from minor to critical. One woman was found trapped between the train and wall. Rescue services and paramedics worked to free the patient from the wreckage before treatment could continue. Once freed, paramedics provided the patient with advanced life support and thereafter transported her by the ER24 medical helicopter to a nearby hospital for urgent medical treatment. The other patients that were found on scene were moved to a nearby platform where they were triaged and treated for their injuries. Once the patients are treated for their injuries, they will be transported to nearby hospitals for urgent medical treatment. The cause of the collision is not yet known but local authorities were on scene for further investigations.
