Johannesburg: Officials at a South African university say one person is dead after prospective students stampeded the campus.

Thousands of young adults and their parents began gathering at the University of Johannesburg campus on Monday to seek admission to the college.

Many had only learned they were eligible for further study after getting results from high school final exams last week.
University of Johannesburg vice chancellor Ihron Rensburg says a mother who had accompanied her son to the campus was killed in the melee. Two others were seriously injured.
