Child (7) killed in South Coast Road collision

The scene of the accident.

A seven-year-old boy was killed while a four-year-old boy was left critically injured following an accident at the corner of South Coast Road and Blamey Road, earlier this morning.

Rescue Care paramedics and Durban Search and Rescue arrived at the scene to find that a taxi and a car had collided in a T-bone format in the junction. The two children who were seated in the back seat of the car were found in a critical condition.

Advanced Life Support paramedics worked to stabilise them at the scene. The seven-year-old went into cardiac arrest and despite paramedics’ attempt at resuscitation, the injuries sustained were too severe and he passed away.

The younger child was placed on a manual ventilator at the scene and rushed to a nearby hospital for the urgent care that he required. A passenger from the taxi and a pedestrian were also injured in the accident and transported to hospital for further care.
