numANA reports that the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) said on Thursday that one of its members died in an accident at Corrobrick Construction’s Rietvlei operations in Johannesburg.  

The 29-year-old worker, who was on night duty, was crushed by bricks early on Thursday morning, NUM regional chairperson Ndlela Radebe said.  He went on to say:  “What is more disturbing is the fact that none of the other workers who were on shift appear to have witnessed the incident when it occurred, and the circumstances surrounding this incident are themselves very confusing and leaves more questions than answers to us.”  Radebe said the NUM would track developments around the incident very closely and participate in uncovering the truth about the death.
