Meiring added that the patient had sustained severe injuries to her head, chest and abdomen.

“We began treatment of the patient to stabilise her vital signs. After 30 minutes of advanced life support treatment, the patient unfortunately succumbed to her injuries.”Meiring said

The details surrounding the exact cause of the incident will remain the subject of a police investigation.
