CAPE TOWN - A person has been killed after being hit by a train at Du Toit's Station in Stellenbosch.

During a separate incident, a 14-year-old boy has been hit by a train between Netreg and Bonteheuwel Stations.
Bonteheuwel ward councillor Angus McKenzie says he is in a critical condition and that a 12-year-old boy who was with him was not injured.
“The 14-year-old boy was knocked by the train while the 12-year-old boy narrowly missed being knocked. This is yet another sad and traumatic incident. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and we will ensure that a thorough investigation is done.”
