Wits extends sympathies to worker's next of kin

- Wits University

The University has received a report that an employee of one of our service providers who worked in a residence passed away last week.

Last Tuesday, students released a fire extinguisher in the Jubilee Hall of Residence, which affected a cleaner in the building.

The worker was rushed to the Campus Health and Wellness Centre and then taken to hospital where the worker was treated for a few days. The worker was discharged from hospital and then passed away.

The cause of death is still to be determined. The University is awaiting a report from the service provider before commenting further.

Our deepest sympathies are extended to the family, friends and colleagues of the worker.
