A young man was killed and another critically injured when they fell from a sixth floor balcony at a complex in Johannesburg in the early hours of this morning.

The men apparently fell when the balcony wall they were leaning against collapsed.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeff Wicks says the men landed on top of each other on the concrete below.

The man who hit the ground first died on the scene while the other suffered fractured ribs and severe spinal trauma.
