A teenager has been critically injured after falling from an upper level parking area in Durban on Saturday afternoon, paramedics said.

“On Saturday afternoon Netcare 911 paramedics responded to the Durban South Beach for a man that had fallen from a height,” Netcare 911 said in a statement.

“Reports from the scene indicate that the 18-year-old-boy was sitting on the wall of the upper level parking with friends when he slipped and fell.
