JOHANNESBURG -At least one person has been rushed to hospital after a section of the roof connecting Sandton City and the Nelson Mandela Square caved in.

Paramedics escorted the woman out of the mall on a stretcher a short while ago.

ER24'S Werner Vermaak said, "Parts of the roof debris fell on top of her and she sustained possible fracture to her ankle and a deep cut. She was stabilised at the scene and later transported to hospital."

It's understood that a ceiling between the banking mall and Nelson Mandela Square has caved in.

A woman who is there said there are ambulances waiting outside the mall.

"Nobody is allowed on the bridge and security is guarding the area."
