Reports from the scene indicate that the woman was assaulted and she was rushed to hospital.

A middle-aged woman was rushed to hospital in a critical condition after she was discovered behind a substation in Factoria, Krugersdorp earlier on Thursday.

It is believed passers-by spotted the half-naked woman behind a substation on Barratt Road at 8.30am and alerted the local community policing forum, Krugersdorp News reported.

They in turn contacted Netcare 911. Their paramedics found the woman in a serious condition.

“Paramedics managed to stabilise her on the scene before transporting her to a nearby hospital for further medical care. Reports from the scene indicate that she was assaulted,” Netcare 911 media liaison officer Athlenda Mathe confirmed.
