Another death on the railway line

A Zimbabwean national, David Wakapira, was killed when a train ran over him in Eastdene last Friday.

He has been, for the past couple of years, a resident of Extension 2, Mhluzi, and the exact circumstances which led to his death remain unclear.

According to reports, the train conductor noticed a plastic bag on the tracks and as the train approached closer, a man appeared and stood on the tracks. It was too late to apply brakes and the deceased was crushed under the train.
