Johannesburg - A security manager at the Sandton Convention Centre, in Johannesburg, died in hospital on Wednesday from injuries sustained in a fall, the centre said.

"There was an incident this morning. Our security manager Michael Ndlovu accidentally fell during an inspection tour. He was airlifted to hospital where he unfortunately passed on," said executive director Mati Nyazema.

She said Ndlovu slipped and fell shortly before 06:00. His colleagues called paramedics and he was airlifted to hospital.

"The circumstances of the fall are currently being investigated."

Nyazema said Ndlovu's next-of-kin had been informed about his death.

Police spokesperson Kim Cloete said Ndlovu fell about 10m to the ground and was airlifted to the Milpark hospital, where he was declared dead.

An inquest docket would be opened, she said.
