Durban - A KwaZulu-Natal man collapsed in a cafe in New Germany after being shot in the head in a hijacking, paramedics said on Wednesday.
The man was shot on Tuesday evening.
"Shortly after 18:00... paramedics from ER24 and EMRS received an emergency call from a distressed patron at a cafe in New Germany... explaining that a man was apparently hijacked and shot in the head.
"The man stumbled into the cafe and collapsed on the floor," said ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak.
