Durban - Scores of people, including schoolchildren, were hurt when a marquee collapsed during the launch of child protection week in Driefontein in KwaZulu-Natal on Friday, a social welfare official said.
Social welfare spokesperson Sifiso Buthelezi said: "There were about 10 000 people in the marquee when strong winds crushed it. About 30 people, including children, were seriously injured.”
He said the marquee collapsed just minutes before social welfare MEC Meshack Radebe was about to address the crowd.
