Bloemfontein – A woman has died and another woman was critically injured after being trapped under a collapsed wall in Douglas Valley.

Spokesperson for Netcare 911, Chris Botha, said paramedics received the call on Wednesday afternoon that there were people trapped under a wall that had collapsed at a stable. It is not yet known what led to the collapse.

"Paramedics arrived at the scene and found that bystanders had pulled the injured from under the wall. Tragically a female in her forties died due to the extensive injuries that she sustained. A 19-year-old female was found to have sustained critical injuries," he said.

The survivor was transported to a Bloemfontein hospital, said Botha.
