Train plunges into the Amanzimtoti River

FOUR people were injured on Tuesday when a goods train plunged into the
Amanzimtoti River near Durban‚ KwaZulu-Natal emergency services said.

The raging river has eroded the sand from under the train tracks‚ causing the
train to plunge several metres into the torrent waters‚” Netcare 911 spokesman
Chris Botha said.

Paramedics arrived at the scene to find the four train staff members severely
traumatised‚ cold and wet.

After they were stabilised on scene‚ medics transported them to the Netcare
Kingsway hospital for the care that they required.
