Cape Town – At least four people were killed and 11 others injured on Saturday when a wall collapsed on them during a wedding ceremony at GaChuene Thogwaneng in Limpopo.
According to IOL, the wall collapsed due to strong winds.
“The incident reportedly happened during a wedding ceremony. People attending the wedding ceremony were reportedly seated in a tent that was joined to an unroofed building when strong winds blew up the tent and, in the process, the wall collapsed, instantly killing three people and injuring scores (of) others,” said Mojapelo.
“Twelve people were seriously injured and were taken to hospital. One of them succumbed to the injuries in hospital, bringing the total number of the deceased to four,” the report quoted police as saying.
The identities of the deceased were not yet to be revealed as their next-of-kin were yet to be informed, a Review Online reported.
An inquest has since been opened.
