Caryl's dad's story in her own words
"Early this morning, my 77-year-old father lost control of his bakkie on a very sandy and corrugated piece of country road. The car flipped on its side and my father was trapped in the vehicle. Along came four men who we now refer to as angels who quickly jumped on the vehicle, literally pulled him out as well as making sure they got the car back on its wheels to be towed. Thank you so much, kind sirs, for helping my dad. You're one of the many reasons it makes it so easy to say that #ImStaying."
