Durban - The KwaZulu-Natal Forensic Pathology staff have been commended for the crucial role in completing autopsies in recent adverse incidents.
The wall of the Pentecostal Holiness Church building collapsed, killing 13 people in Empangeni on the eve of Good Friday last week.
Then a bus carrying mourners returning from that funeral overturned near KwaCeza, leaving 52 people injured.
More than 70 people were reported dead in the KZN flood disaster.
KwaZulu-Natal Health MEC Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo heaped praise on all the paramedics, doctors and nurses who sprung to action and rendered medical assistance to the injured.
“We would like to commend our KZN Health Emergency Medical Services staff for stabilising and transporting these patients, and the doctors and nurses at Ceza and Nkonjeni hospitals, who received them and swiftly provided medical attention. We dispatched seven Intermediate Life Support Paramedics, six Basic Life Support paramedics, two Emergency Support Vehicles, and 1 rescue response vehicle to the scene. All our EMS personnel applied themselves fully, stabilising those who were seriously injured, before transferring them to hospital. They were equal to the task, and we appreciate what they did," Dhlomo said....
