Three men sustained moderate injuries after a sandbank collapsed on a construction site in Mount Moraih in KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday, paramedics said.

Crisis Medical spokesperson Kyle Van Reenen said paramedics, along with members of SAPS search and rescue as well as Ethekwini Fire and Rescue services, worked for over an hour on scene to free the men.

“Once freed, all three men were stabilised on scene before being taken to a nearby hospital for further care.”

It was not known what caused the incident at the construction site and investigations were underway.
