Pretorian student dies after being pushed from the 7th floor



Two men were arrested after allegedly pushing a 18-year-old student from the seventh floor of an apartment building in Arcadia, east of Pretoria, early in the morning on Saturday morning.

"According to the eyewitness account, the victim was involved in a discussion with the suspect before being pushed," police spokesman Captain Daniel Mavimbela said.

Mavimbela said the student was taken to the hospital, but he died the same day.

He said that the police "worked tirelessly" all night and that they arrested two men on the afternoon around noon.

The twin, aged 23 and 27, is charged with murder and is expected to appear before the court in Pretoria soon.

Local Police Commander Brigadier Ramakamakam Kekan praised the quick arrests officers.

"The informers and other ordinary members of the community must also be grateful for providing us with information that led to the identification and arrest of the suspects," Kekana said.
