Gauteng MEC for Education Panyaza Lesufi has addressed the media after the tragic Hoërskool Driehoek bridge collapse claimed the lives of three learners, and left 23 others injured. Two males and one female are among the deceased. "Emergency medical helicopters have also been called to airlift some of the critically injured patients to a nearby hospital", Meiring said.

"We thank the ambulances, police, local councilors and ordinary members of the public who dropped everything [they were doing] to come to our rescue", said Lesufi.

Netcare 911 reported earlier that "multiple people have sustained injuries ranging from minor to moderate".

Lesufi questioned the school's age (45 years old) and its capacity (1 060).

Three teenagers have died and five more were listed in critical condition after a bridge linking classrooms at a school collapsed.

- Christa Eybers, Reporter - Eyewitness NewsOverall, 26 children were affected by the disaster.

"We are extremely concerned by what could have led to this structural collapse". The school has been closed.

The reason for the walkway's collapse was not immediately known, but all relevant authorities were on the scene to investigate.
