A man died after a wall collapsed on Wednesday morning on the corner of Kruger and Marshall streets in Johannesburg, Netcare said in a statement.

Spokesperson Shawn Herbst said: “It is alleged that a tipper truck transporting materials for recycling knocked an eight-meter portion of a wall which had collapsed on two pedestrians.

“The patients, an adult male, sustained fatal injuries and was declared deceased on the scene.”

Herbst said a second female patient was found to have sustained moderate injuries to her lower limbs. She was treated on scene and once stabilised was transported to hospital.
