ER24 spokesman Werner Vermaak said it was understood that the tree had fallen over during a storm.
“A woman‚ believed to be in her early thirties‚ was found inside the building with fatal injuries. Sadly‚ there was nothing that paramedics could do for her and she was declared dead by the local emergency services‚” he said.
Three people were found outside the building with minor scrapes and bruises‚ he added.
