A 21-YEAR-OLD man was killed when a tree stump rolled on top of him at Sun­coast Beach in Dur­ban early yes­ter­day morn­ing, paramedics said.

When paramedics ar­rived on the scene at 1.30am, the man was found ly­ing un­der­neath the tree stump on the beach, ER24 spokes­woman Ineke van Huyssteen said.

“It’s be­lieved the tree stump was on top of an em­bank­ment be­fore it came loose and rolled down on top of the man.

“Un­for­tu­nately, there was noth­ing they could do for him and he was de­clared dead on the scene by ER24,” she said. – ANA
