A student in Pretoria dies after being pushed from the 7th floor



Two men were arrested after allegedly pushing the 18-year-old student on the seventh floor of an apartment in Arcadia, east of Pretoria, early Saturday morning.

"According to witnesses, the victim was involved in an argument with the suspects before being pushed," police spokesman Captain Daniel Mavimbela said.

Mavimbela said the student was taken to hospital but died the same day.

He said the police worked "tirelessly" overnight and arrested two men Sunday around noon.

The duo, aged 23 and 27, was charged with murder and is expected to appear before the Search Court in Pretoria soon.

The local police commander, Brigadier Ramakamakama Kekana, praised the officers for quick arrest.

"Informers and other ordinary members of the community must also thank them for providing us with information that led to the identification and apprehension of suspects," said Kekana.
