David Leslie sadly passed away on the afternoon of 18 October 2020, after suffering serious injuries during a farm attack that took place on 1 September 2020, at 22:00, on the farm Christina, in Harrismith, in the Free State province of South Africa. David Leslie (81) was very seriously injured when an attacker, who had slipped in behind a truck coming through the security gate, attacked him. At the time David Leslie had been outside to check the generator and the attacker entered the home through an open door.
The attacker assaulted David and the caregiver breaking David’s cheekbone and nose. The caregiver fled the home screaming for help and the attacker pursued her bashing her to the ground and forcing his kierie down on her neck. A farm foreman came to her assistance and managed to get the attacker under control but also suffered a number of injuries during the assault.
All role players including farmers, SAPS, and emergency personnel responded. David’s wife Joan was unharmed during the attack but David suffered a number of serious injuries.
