An older black woman was stuck on the side of the road with a flat tyre, and her help came from an unexpected person.

A white male with a "rather fancy Mercedes SUV" took time out of his schedule to lend the woman in need a helping hand, regardless of her race.

"The best part was obviously the great conversation the two of them were having. Big smiles all around.", Venter said, adding "THIS is my South Africa!!!”

She continued by saying she was still smiling over what she saw and she even managed to take a photo of the two.
