Baby critical after Germiston accident
Johannesburg - A 6-month-old baby was airlifted to hospital after sustaining critical injuries in a minibus taxi accident in Germiston, paramedics said on Wednesday.
The child sustained head injuries and was placed on life support equipment, ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson said.
The driver lost control of the vehicle on the N17 near the Osborn Road exit, apparently due to a mechanical problem.
"The fully-laden taxi rolled onto its roof and landed in the middle of the highway."
Fifteen adults were taken to hospital for minor to moderate injuries. The baby was airlifted to the Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital in Johannesburg.
