A man fell from a three-storey height at the popular mall Menlyn Shopping Centre on Thursday morning.

Emer-G-Med attended to a call at the popular shopping destination just after 08:00.

“On arrival at the scene, it was established that a male, approximately thirty years of age, had fallen from a height of approximately three storeys.”

The man is in a critical condition, said Emer-G-Med.

“Advanced Life Support intervention was needed to stabilise him before he was placed onto a mechanical ventilator to assist him in breathing,” said the emergency service.

The injured man was airlifted by Netcare911’s aeromedical helicopter to a specialist facility for the necessary care that he required.

“The reason for the fall and the events preceding it are unclear and will form the subject of a South African Police Service investigation,” Emer-G-Med said.


In 2019, a man was arrested for murder for allegedly killing someone at the shopping centre.

The alleged murderer shot someone in the parking lot of the mall.

The shooting allegedly happened after an altercation between the accused and two other people.

In 2018, a woman fell to her death at the Menlyn Mall, jumping from the sixth floor of the mall’s parking bay.

The woman was apparently spoken to by security guards and family members in attempts to talk her out of the jump.

She apparently dove over the rails as security guards tried to catch her by her feet. She unfortunately slipped through the security guard’s hands.

In 2014, a security guard working at the mall also jumped to his death inside the shopping centre.

According to his colleagues, the security guard, Skhumbuzo, appeared agitated before he jumped to his death.

“He was walking up and down on the first floor, constantly checking his phone. He then left and went to the top floor. In less than ten minutes, we saw his body coming down but we didn’t see him jump,” said a worker at a kiosk close to where the security guard landed.
