Ten farm workers who survived a horrible accident that claimed the lives of four of their colleagues have been rushed to different hospitals around East London.
Health department spokesman Sizwe Kupelo said it was four workers who died on the scene, not six as it was reported earlier.
“Paramedics have now confirmed that four workers died on the scene. Others sustained minor and serious injuries and have been taken to hospitals,” he said.
The four farm workers died when the bakkies belonging to farmers they are working for, collided head-on, on the R72 near the Kidds Beach turn off outside East London.
Kupelo said it was not yet clear what caused the accident.
