WATCH: Woman Collapses And Dies In Bulawayo CBD
An unidentified woman on Wednesday afternoon collapsed and died outside Homelink offices at the corner of 10th Avenue and Fort Street in the Bulawayo city centre.
Eyewitnesses who were present when she collapsed, told CITE that the incident occurred at around 12 noon and people tried to summon an ambulance but did not get any response in time. Said a witness who asked not to be named:
The lady seemed very young, maybe in her late twenties thereabout. She was in the company of an older woman. It was around past 12. As they nearing that turn by Homelink she fell.
The older woman she was with then asked for help. We assisted her to call for an ambulance. They kept saying they were coming. While awaiting the ambulance she told us they were coming from seeing a doctor and they were on their way to get medication from a pharmacy before heading home.
The ambulance arrived around 1:30, an hour after we had made the call. If they had come early maybe she would have gotten help.
The ambulance people are the ones who covered her with the red blanket. We then assisted the older woman to call the police. They then arrived together with the city council staff who then fumigated the body.
She was reportedly coming from the doctor and headed to a pharmacy to buy medication.
