'Seven Die' In Traffic Officer Fitness Test

Seven people are believed to have died while undergoing a fitness test used to select prospective candidates for traffic officer jobs in South Africa.

The victims were among tens of thousands of applicants competing for 90 provincial traffic officer posts in Pietermaritzburg, in the KwaZulu-Natal Province, according to a report by the state-owned South African Broadcasting Corporation.

More than 35,000 job seekers reportedly applied for the 90 jobs that were up for grabs and around 15,000 people are believed to have taken the physical tests late last week.
