Durban - A seven-months' pregnant woman died after she jumped out of parked car in Pinetown on Monday afternoon, paramedics said.

The 31-year-old woman was found sitting on the pavement near the car, on Willow Crescent, after her husband called for help, ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said in a statement.

She appeared not to be injured, but when paramedics put her into their ambulance to do a more thorough assessment, her vital signs rapidly deteriorated.

Paramedics tried to save her and her baby, but they died on arrival at the RK Khan hospital.

Meiring described it as a “freak incident”.
