EMER-G-MED Paramedics attended this accident scene.EMER-G-MED Emer-G-Med is an Advanced Life Support pre-hospital emergency medical service which operates in the City of Johannesburg, Ekurhuleni and Tshwane, Gauteng.
Approximately 20 workers have been transported to hospital after an industrial accident at a business in Elandsfontein – east of Johannesburg.
Just after 10am multiple EMER-G-MED and Netcare911 vehicles were dispatched to the scene. It’s believed that there was a gas leak in the building, which was inhaled by the workers – leaving upwards of 20 patients with varying degrees of illness and injury.
Paramedics worked on the scene to triage and stabilise the patients, before they were rapidly transported to various nearby hospitals for further management – some of which under Advanced Life Support care.
Local authorities are on the scene to investigate and fix the source of the gas leak.
