Arrive Alive

Two dead, two critical after being set alight near an abandoned building in Potchefstroom Industrial.

ER24 responded to an incident where two men were killed and two others critically injured after they were apparently set alight near an abandoned building in Potchefstroom Industrial.

At 05h00, ER24 arrived at the Ikageng Police station after a man was brought in with burn wounds. On assessment, medics found that the man had sustained burn wounds over most of his body, leaving him in a severe condition. The man was treated and provided with advanced life support before he was transported to a nearby hospital for further care.

At 07h00, ER24 and Mooirivier Beskerming First Responders were called to an abandoned building in the Potchefstroom Industrial area. On scene, medics found a man with numerous burn wounds lying far away from the building. The man was treated and provided with advanced life support before he was transported to a nearby hospital for urgent care.

Local Security Members later inspected the building and found two bodies inside. Unfortunately, both patients had already succumbed to their numerous burn injuries. Nothing could be done, and they were declared dead by the Mooirivier Beskerming First Responders.

The exact details surrounding this incident are unknown, but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations
