Tankwa Town Incident Report


Report from Tankwa Town:

It is with a heavy heart that we report that on Saturday 30th April, 52 year old Dana Lawless passed away after being airlifted off site from the AfrikaBurn event.

Dana was travelling on her Theme Camp’s art car when she lost her footing and fell under the trailer that it was towing. Medics were on the scene within minutes and she was stabilised and airlifted off site. Unfortunately she succumbed to her injuries and passed away en route to a Cape Town hospital.

AfrikaBurn would like to offer our sincerest condolences to her family, camp mates  and loved ones.

Full details will follow as they are processed.
