A MOTHER and her child died, while the fa­ther and a sib­ling were se­ri­ously in­jured in a car crash on the N17 in Brak­pan yes­ter­day morn­ing. ER24 paramedics and other emer­gency ser­vices ar­rived on the scene where they found the car had crashed into the con­crete pil­lar of a bridge, ER24 spokesper­son Werner Ver­maak said. “A child, believed to be about four, died in­stantly. The mother was found with fatal in­juries trapped in­side the ve­hi­cle. The fa­ther and an eight-year-old boy were se­ri­ously in­jured. An emer­gency he­li­copter was called to air­lift them, but they ended up be­ing rushed by am­bu­lance to a nearby hos­pi­tal,” he added. Both chil­dren were flung out of the car when it crashed, Ver­maak said. – ANA
