MAN IN SERIOUS CONDITION AFTER FALLING FROM A TRAIN IN KEMPTONPARK

A man, believed to be in his twenties, sustained serious head injuries when he allegedly fell from a train in Kemptonpark yesterday afternoon.

Shortly before 5pm, paramedics from ER24 arrived on the scene where they were escorted by another medical service to the train tracks. The man was found lying near the tracks with severe head injuries.

Paramedics stabilised him on the scene and later carried him back to an access point where he was loaded into an ER24 ambulance and transported to a nearby hospital.

The exact circumstances surrounding the incident is not yet known. Bystanders could not confirm if the man was pushed from the train or if he was ‘surfing’ when the incident happened.
