Sue Holloway, 71, had a traumatising experience when she went through a two-hour long hijacking drama on Friday.
However, throughout the entire ordeal, Sue knew she could count on her husband, Allan, to find her.
Briefly.co.za gathered Sue was hijacked when she went to fetch her grandsons at a school in Doringkloof, Centurion.
Within 15 minutes of the hijacking, the school phoned Allan to let him know what happened.
Knowing that he had to do something to save his wife, the concerned husband decided to follow her phone’s signal by connecting his iPhone’s detection system to his wife’s.
The detection system showed the hijackers and his wife were already in Mamelodi, east of Pretoria.
According to reports, Allan immediately got in his car and contacted his friends in the private security sector. He drove straight to the spot her phone’s signal last registered.
Meanwhile, Sue’s hands were tied up and she had been abused for more than an hour. Then, the hijackers took her shoes and left her in a field.
The barefoot woman found a path, which she decided to follow. It was there where Constable Edwin Chauke saw her. He was on his way to a prayer meeting, but stopped as soon as he spotted her.
Chauke untied Sue’s hands and immediately phoned her husband.
“She was yelling and she looked very scared. Maybe it was God that told me to help her” Chauke recalled.
The humble hero added he was happy he could help save Sue’s life.
A relieved Alan praised the police and his friends for helping bring back his wife.
