Hundreds suffer disabling injuries at Prasa

by 12/07/2018 13:06:00 0 comments 1 Views

The overwhelming number of the disabling injuries [853] were due to assaults by fare evading commuters and the public and from injuries resulting from company motor vehicles‚ electrocutions‚ smoke inhalations resulting from high tension burnouts‚ trips and falls resulting from uneven surfaces and on platforms and unsafe acts.

While some of the fatalities were a result of train accidents including collisions and staff falling between platforms and trains and being struck by trains [as a result of the fall]; Nzimande reported that members of the public and commuters were perpetrators of deadly violence in some cases.

He referred to one such incident.

“The incident occurred during a station closure at Olifantsfontein‚ wherein a colleague was assaulted by a commuter. The safety patroller (deceased) was rushing to assist the assaulted colleague when he did not observe an approaching train from the south about to enter the station. He moved too close to the line in operation and was struck by the train and died on impact‚” said Nzimande about a 2015/16 death.
