Tragedy hit Boksburg earlier today when a vehicle towing a gas tanker collided with a low-level bridge, compressing the upper half of the tanker and causing a gas leak that subsequently erupted, killing and wounding many.
The event, which resulted in several injuries, highlighted a disturbing trend whereby those who were expected to provide assistance instead took images and videos for social media postings. Lady Du had this to say about this strange conduct.
“Can we not take videos of people going through real life issues 💔💔💔💔 yazi instead of assisting people we take videos for posting. what world do we live in now 😭😭😭
Sharing videos of abo mama abadala badly injured naked 💔💔💔 asifundiswanga kanje 😭😭😭.”
Simon Lapping, an Ekurhuleni councillor, has stated that this disaster has never been witnessed before and that he hopes a thorough inquiry be carried out.
“There must be serious investigation as to how a truck carrying gas can go in under a low-level bridge.” – he said.
