A Metrorail maintenance worker lost his life after being hit by a passenger train on Thursday morning. The incident took place on the tracks of Clovelly station near Fish Hoek.

According to reports the victim suffered extensive injuries and multiple fractures, including a facture to the skull.

It is believed that the man was sucked into the vacuum the moving train created on the lines.

"Metrorail will co-operate with authorities during the investigation. The station at Covelly no longer functioned as a station," Metrorail spokesperson Riana Scott says.

“We will assist the family of the victim and give them the necessary support,” she added.
