[CENTURION] Man dead after vehicle ends up in the river

A man has lost his life after his car ended up in the flooded Hennopsrivier in the Clubview suburb of Centurion this morning.

It is unknown as to how the vehicle ended up in the river, but two passing cyclists noticed it and called for help suspecting that the driver was still trapped inside. The SAPS Diving Team, GPG Rescue and ER24 paramedics were on the scene at 7:59 this morning. Many attempts were made to get to the vehicle in the raging river by the rescue crews.

By just before 13:00 the divers along with GPG Rescue managed to pull the body of a man from the submerged vehicle. ER24 declared the man dead on arrival and handed the scene over to the South African Police Services.
