Bloemfontein - Shocked onlookers saw how a woman jumped seven storeys to her death in the lobby of the MediClinic hospital in Bloemfontein on Thursday.

Volksblad reported that Sanli Botha, 46, apparently landed on the tiled floor and hit her head on the side of the fountain, dying on the scene.

Botha had been accompanying her husband, Johannes, 52, who was feeling unwell and was about to be admitted to hospital.

Several people were at the busy entrance and heard a loud noise when Botha landed outside the hospital pharmacy.

Her husband, who had been looking for her in the hospital, found her body and collapsed next to it. He was later treated for shock.

A pharmacy worker came out and covered the body. He said it had been an ugly picture.

“Nobody wants to see something like this.”

Botha was apparently receiving psychiatric treatment.

The couple didn’t have children.
