Poisoning — South Africa
Six people collapsed and were taken to hospital — 5 of them in a critical condition — after apparently ingesting an unknown substance in the Cape Town suburb of Wetton on Monday [13 Jan 2020].
ER24 spokesperson Russell Meiring said the ambulance service was initially alerted to several people in desperate need of help.
“It is believed to have been some sort of poisoning incident. All those affected had ingested some sort of substance which is not yet known,” he told TimesLIVE.
