THREE men were in­jured, one crit­i­cally, when they were ap­par­ently as­saulted in Se­cunda, Mpumalanga, in the early hours of yesterday, paramedics said. ER24 paramedics were called to the scene by the local author­i­ties, ER24 spokesper­son Rus­sel Meir­ing said. “Upon ar­rival, paramedics found one man ly­ing in the mid­dle of the road while two oth­ers were found fur­ther down the road. Paramedics as­sessed the men and found that one man had sus­tained nu­mer­ous stab and bite wounds and was in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion. The two other men were found to have sus­tained minor to mod­er­ate in­juries,” he said. Paramedics treated the in­jured men and pro­vided the crit­i­cally in­jured pa­tient with ad­vanced life-sup­port in­ter­ven­tions. They were trans­ported by am­bu­lance to Evan­der Hos­pi­tal. “The de­tails sur­round­ing this in­ci­dent are not known, but local author­i­ties were on scene,” Meir­ing said. – ANA
