City of Cape Town’s Disaster Risk Management Centre has confirmed that an adult male died after a cave collapsed on four homeless people. 

Disaster Risk Management Centre Spokesperson Wilfred Solomons Johannes said last night four people found themselves in difficulty when rockfalls occurred at a cave in Hout Bay. 

Three of the men evacuated the cave when they released what was happening and unfortunately one adult male was stuck. 

Solomons-Johannes said the paramedics returned to the scene with the assumption that he was still alive but they found him dead. The officials have established the identity of the deceased and now they are busy making contact with his next of kin.
