Narrow escape for security guard

2013-01-08 00:00

Thuli Ndlovu, a security guard at AB Jackson sports fields near Harry Gwala stadium, had a narrow escape when a huge tree toppled right next to the guard’s hut where she was sheltering from the strong winds of Sunday’s storm.

She said her biggest fear was that the wooden hut would be damaged or, even worse, washed away while she was inside.

Ndlovu told The Witness there was so much noise during the storm that she was very scared.

When she emerged from the hut after the storm, she was amazed to see that the tree had fallen just metres from where she had been sitting.
