Two people were seriously injured on Wednesday, in an industrial accident at a business on Boeing road in Pretoria east, paramedics said.
ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said that paramedics arrived on the scene to find two men lying inside the workshop of a local business.
“ER24 paramedics assessed both men and found that they had both sustained numerous injuries, leaving them in a serious condition. The men were treated for their injuries and were provided with pain-relief medication before they were transported to a private hospital for further treatment,” he said.
“It is believed that the two men had been filling a truck tyre with air when it apparently burst.”
He said that an investigation would be launched.
