Graaff-Reinet Advertiser - - Voorblad -

In a cru­el twist of fa­te, a se­cond se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent within a week has occur­red on municipal pro­per­ty, with one per­son found de­ad at the sce­ne.

This ac­ci­dent hap­pe­ned on Tu­es­day af­ter­noon, 27 No­vem­ber, just af­ter 15:00 at the was­te trans­fer sta­ti­on.

The a­vai­la­ble in­for­ma­ti­on is cur­rent­ly ske­t­chy, but B­ri­ga­dier Ru­dolph A­dolph, clus­ter com­man­der for the Graaff Rei­net dis­trict SAPS, con­fir­med that a wall had col­lap­sed at the dum­ping si­te.

Ap­pa­rent­ly the wall col­lap­sed on­to the wo­man, but Brig A­dolph said that until the re­sults of the in­quest are ma­de kno­wn, it is not cer­tain that this is w­hat cau­sed the wo­man’s de­ath.

“One fe­ma­le per­son was de­cla­red de­ad on the sce­ne, and an in­quest doc­ket has been o­pe­ned to de­ter­mi­ne the cau­se of de­ath,” said Brig A­dolph.

The na­me of the de­ce­a­sed is being wit­hheld until her next-of-kin ha­ve been in­for­med.
