On Sunday the 24th of October 2021 yet another devastating news article was shared by Arrive Alive. This follows another senseless killing incident which happened in the KwaZulu-Natal province.

Many were left in a state of shock as it seems as if there are some criminals in South Africa who do not treasure lives of others. In Durban, there are some areas which are rated as extremely dangerous and a man lost his dear life in one of the areas which are experiencing a surge in crime.

According to reports, a dead body was discovered today in the morning in Cottonlands. Residents bumped into a man who was lying in a pool of blood along Vincent Dickinson Road and they quickly alerted the police.

The police came in the company of paramedics and some crime scene experts. They got to the scene at approximately 05:08 and found a body of a male lying in the middle of the street.

Paramedics began assessing the patient and they noticed that he was not responsive to the interventions which were being administered to him. During the examination, paramedics noted that the victim had a single stab wound which was on his chest which is believed to have led to his demise. He was therefore declared dead on the scene.
