Man 26 injured in Farm attack

A farm worker was seriously injured when an armed gang shot him at a farm in Boskop outside Pretoria at noon on Tuesday, Netcare 911 said.

"It is believed that several armed gunmen entered the farm and just started shooting... one of the farm workers was critically wounded in the chest," spokesperson Chris Botha said in a statement.

The 26-year-old man was airlifted to the Steve Biko hospital.

"The team of emergency personnel worked fervently to stabilise the critically wounded man and after placing him on a ventilator and deftly immobilising him, they airlifted him to hospital for specialised treatment."

The farm owners were not home at the time and police could not immediately be reached for comment.
