Pretoria - An elderly Pretoria couple were found dead in their home on Thursday morning, paramedics said.
Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said they were called to a house in Mayville to treat a person who had collapsed.
"When we got there the poor paramedics got the shock of their lives," he said.
The man, in his 80s, was found face-down in the lounge with his arms and legs tied up, and was dead.
His wife, also in her 80s, was found dead in the passage.
Police were on the scene, he said.
Paramedics were called by the couple's son who had found them on the floor.
