A man who fell four floors from a Durban high-rise building on Thursday morning suffered critical injuries and is now being treated in hospital.

Netcare 911 told The Bulrushes that a man fell from a block of flats along Lagoon Drive in Umhlanga, Durban.

“Reports from the scene indicate that the 24-year-old male had fallen from the 4th floor, landing on the concrete below,” said Netcare 911 spokesperson, Shawn Herbst.

“When paramedics arrived on the scene the patient was found to have sustained critical injuries.

“The patient was treated on scene by Netcare 911 emergency care practitioners and once stabilised was rushed through to a local hospital.”

Netcare 911 said it was still unclear what led to the man falling from so high up.
