The student from Mondeor High School was stabbed near the school


A 19-year-old high school student from the 11th grade Mondeor High School died after a knife cut outside the school south of Johannesburg.

"The ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene at 08:14 to find another service that judged the boy, and the ratings showed the patient had a stab wound on his chest and no signs of life," ER24 spokesman Russel said Meiring.

He said CPR was initiated immediately to resuscitate the patient.

"Unfortunately, after some time, no vital signs returned and he was declared dead by another service," Meiring said.

Details of the incident on Wednesday morning are unclear. Local authorities are on-site to investigate.

Gauteng spokesman Steve Mabona said MEC Panyaza Lesufi is on the way to the scene.
