27-year-old woman was allegedly set ablaze by her boyfriend, whose name is yet to be disclosed.

The woman who is fighting for her life in the hospital was reportedly burnt while trying to stop her man from burning her car.

ER24 claimed they met the car on fire upon arriving the scene in Rynfield, Benoni.

The man was reportedly injured alongside two other women.

“The patients were treated and provided with advanced life support interventions before they were transported to nearby hospitals for further care,” ER24 said.
