It was when they pulled out the woman’s body that he saw she was breathing. She was immediately rushed to a Krugersdorp hospital.

Accident

The Gauteng woman was declared dead after an accident during the early hours of Sunday. The car she was travelling in lost control and rolled. Two other passengers were killed in the vehicle.

Distress Assist Ambulance service medics incorrectly declared the woman dead, and a full investigation has been launched, according to Distress alert operations manager Gerrit Bradnick.

Bradnick said medics received a call about an ambulance from a different service that collided with the vehicle which had rolled in another accident.

Paperwork

According to the Sowetan, the medics from the ambulance service at the scene found the bodies outside the rolled vehicle.

After the injured were transported to hospital, Bradnick said they realised that no one had done the paperwork on the bodies.

“My team did the paperwork on two of the bodies. This lady had severe and multiple injuries. The injuries, especially to her head, were so bad you could not work out her age.”

All protocols were followed, according to the operations manager. Investigations were immediately launched as soon as the Carletonvile hospital informed them of the misdeclaration.
