Five-month-old baby believed to be trapped under rubble amidst Alex evictions
A five-month-old baby is believed to be trapped in one of the houses demolished in Alexandra.
Fresh unrests erupted in the area on Friday morning when the Red Ants destroyed about 100 illegal structures near the Jukskei river.
It’s still unclear whether the child is alive.
Eyewitness News reporter Robinson Nqola says the demolition of homes follows an eviction order which the Red Ants say they received and was issued to the community members, but residents say they were never given notice.
We understand that in one of the houses that were demolished here, there is a five-month-old baby that is believed to be trapped but we are still waiting on authorities to confirm that.Robinson Nqola, Reporter - EWN
It is unclear whether the baby is alive or not. Police say they are not aware of that but we have a grandmother here who is hysterical and says they need to bring back her grandchild.Robinson Nqola, Reporter - EWN
It is still unclear who made the application, we spoke to the City of Johannesburg and they could not confirm.Robinson Nqola, Reporter - EWN
