Another guard sustained critical gunshot wounds and was stabilized on the scene before being airlifted to a Level 1 trauma unit by the Netcare911 Aeromedical Helicopter. The third guard sustained moderate injuries and was transported to the hospital for further treatment.

Both incidents have prompted the closure of major roads in Durban to allow the police to conduct thorough investigations. The N2 South Bound was closed following the attempted heist on Thursday night, while the M35 was closed in both directions after the heist on Tuesday.
