Man critical after falling off moving train
Paramedics say the man was found conscious, lying on the platform at the Birchleigh Station.
JOHANNESBURG - A 26-year-old man is in a critical condition after being pushed off a moving train in Kempton Park, on the East Rand apparently during an attempted robbery.
Paramedics say the man sustained head injuries and was found lying conscious at the Birchleigh Train Station last night.
ER24 spokeswoman Luyanda Majija says the man was treated and transported to Tembisa Hospital for further medical care.
Responding ER24 paramedics found the man lying on the Birchleigh Station platform in a conscious state despite the serious head injury he sustained.
"The patient told paramedics he has been pushed off the train as he was fighting off the men who were trying to rob him. The incident is currently under investigation."
