    The body was identified by a passerby. 


    According to Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA), officers and medics were dispatched to the location. 

    On arrival, RUSA Members walked along the railway line until they reached the river bank. 

    “On examination, the deceased was found to have sustained a head injury. His pockets were turned inside out. It could not be established if he had fallen or had been pushed from the bridge above as the guard rails were missing

    “The Tongaat SAPS were on scene and are investigating further.”
