Johannesburg - A 7-year-old schoolboy was crushed to death when a tree branch fell on him at a primary school in Chaka's Head, on the KwaZulu-Natal North Coast on Tuesday, paramedics said.

He was thought to have been standing under the tree when the branch fell on him from a height of about 10m, said Netcare911 spokesperson Chris Botha, who described it as a "freak accident".

The boy died before paramedics arrived, he said.

    Ag no, life can be so cruel. Not right when " little ones " do not get to live their lives into adulthood. R.I.P.
