One man has jumped to his death and six others are reported to have died and over fifty rescued in a building fire in Johannesburg.
Emergency workers fear there could be more bodies in the Cape York building.
In a desperate bid for survival, residents made escape ropes out of joined up bed sheets and managed to get to safety.
