Netcare 911 paramedics and several other services arrived at the scene and after triaging found that sixteen commuters were injured, one critically while fifteen had injuries ranging from serious to minor.
Paramedics stabilised all the injured at the scene before they transported them to various hospitals for the care that they required.
