Two security guards are in a critical condition after an attempted robbery in Benrose in Johannesburg during the early hours Saturday.

“The apparent robbery took place as the guards were patrolling a railway line in the area around 2am‚” said ER24 spokesperson Annine Dormehl.

“ER24 paramedics were called for assistance by provincial emergency services and treated one of the patients on scene.

“Both patients were transported to Union hospital by provincial emergency services.

“Local authorities will be conducting an investigation into this incident‚” Dormehl said.
