[SUNNYSIDE] – Two injured after alleged explosion at sub-station.
Two people were left injured this morning, one of them seriously, following an alleged explosion at an electrical sub-station in Sunnyside, Pretoria.
ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene shortly after 10h00 to find a doctor on site already treating one of the patients. A second man was found walking around on the scene.
It is believed that the two had been working on the sub-station when there had been an alleged explosion, causing a fire to break out.
Paramedics assessed the two patients and found that one had sustained serious injuries while the second had escaped with moderate injuries.
Paramedics, as well as the doctor, treated the patients and thereafter transported them to Mediclinic Muelmed for urgent treatment.
The local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
