A man was shot and critically wounded during an
apparent attempted hijacking in Robertsham, Johannesburg, paramedics
said on Tuesday.
“The man was pulling into his
driveway when he was approached by unknown gunman. A shot was fired and
he was critically wounded in the upper leg,” said Netcare 911 spokesman
“It appears that the robbers fled when the man's wife pulled in behind his car just after he was shot.”
The shooting happened around 7.45pm on Monday evening.
“When Netcare 911 paramedics
arrived they found the patient lying in a pool of blood totally
unresponsive. Medics fervently started to resuscitate the critically
wounded man and after placing him on a ventilator and giving him
intravenous fluid, the patient started to respond positively.”
He was taken to Garden City hospital for further treatment.
