A worker – who is yet to be named – has died after he was knocked over and dragged by a haulage truck for a short distance at a business in Cedarfield Close in Springfield Park, north of Durban.

ALS Paramedics Medical Services said the tragedy occurred on Friday just after 11 am.

The paramedics said they received numerous calls from the business requesting urgent assistance as one of the employees had been struck by a truck and dragged for some metres.

When paramedics arrived on the scene they found a male believed to be in his thirties had sustained multiple major injuries.

“Unfortunately there was nothing more Paramedics could do for the man. He was declared deceased on the scene,” said ALS Paramedics Medical Services.

Police officers were also on the scene.
