“A three-year-old toddler was unfortunately found to have suffered fatal injuries and declared dead on arrival by Metro EMS. Two men in their 30s were found entrapped in the vehicle and in a critical condition,” Campbell said.

A bus fell down an embankment after its battery failed in Wilderness in the Western Cape.

Campbell said it is believed the bus was travelling back to Wittedrift close to Plettenberg Bay after a rugby match at Nelson Mandela University Saasveld, near George.

“They had apparently taken this road through the back of Wilderness to connect to the N2 as the Saasveld road is closed due to flood damage,” Campbell said.

“Thirty-four men, women and children also were treated and transported to hospital for minor injuries by all services on the scene. The SA Police Services were also on the scene for further investigations,” Campbell said.
