Fire and rescue crews had to cut through doors and security gates to reach an injured man who fell from the 10th floor of a burning building in Johannesburg early on Sunday.

Flames poured from the upper floors of the building on the corners of Commissioner and Joubert Streets in the central part of the city.

“Reports from the scene indicate that a man believed to be approximately 40-years-old sustained serious injuries after it was alleged he jumped from a 10th floor window landing on the 6th floor,” said Netcare 911 spokesperson Shawn Herbst.

“Due to limited access the fire and rescue services had to cut their way through doors and security barriers to allow paramedics access to the patient.

The fire started on the upper levels of the building.

“Once stabilized the patient was transported by government ambulance to hospital for further treatment.”

Circumstances leading up to the fire will be investigated by police.
