Johannesburg - A 10-year-old girl was killed when she fell off a bridge onto the N2 highway in Durban on Thursday, KwaZulu-Natal paramedics said.

Paramedics found the body lying in the middle of the highway under the Ridgeview Road bridge around 14:00, Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks said.

"It is still unclear what the girl was doing on the bridge and... how she fell is also not known."

Wicks said the death would be investigated.

    Very Sad.. :-( Where were her parents? Pisses me off when people who don't deserve kids have them and those that are deserving can't have them..

      Tragic - For sure! To everyone asking where the parents were - Who are you to judge? The thought that this 10yr old girl might've walked back from school while her parents were at work, have probably not spring to your minds? Some people’s comments just show how immature they really are...
