Man falls into concrete mixer, dies
Cape Town - A Western Cape man died when he fell into an industrial concrete mixer on Wednesday morning, paramedics said.
Two men were cleaning the machine at a concrete lintel factory near Vissershoek when the machine suddenly switched on, causing them to fall into it, ER24 spokesperson Andre Visser said.
The men called for help, but by the time they were pulled from the machine they had already sustained serious injuries, he said.
One man died on the scene and the other was airlifted to hospital with "severe injuries to his lower extremities", Visser said.
Authorities were to investigate the industrial accident further.
