South Africa: One Killed, Three Injured at Cape Town International Airport

According to The Associated Press, South African media say one person has died in a shooting in Cape Town International Airport.

News channel eNCA said on its website that police reported at least three other people were injured in the shooting in an airport restaurant on Wednesday (May 28). 

The news website carried a photograph of a man lying on the floor with blood around his head.

Local reports said that a man shot a woman before shooting himself.

COMMENT: As the security risks we increasingly face around the globe, not knowing when we may be asked to help out in an emergency situation, it is every global citizen's responsibility to take a first-responder first aid course and to learn how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Not learning these vital skills can easily put all of us at risk.

Initial reaction is that the shooting stemmed from a domestic disturbance.

This report will be updated tomorrow as new and accurate information is received.
