The witness wrote:

I was probably the third car on scene. I saw this black man risk his life multiple times to try and pull a white man out of a burning car.
He was unsuccessful in his first few attempts due to the driver having his seatbelt on and the intensity of the fire. When the seatbelt burnt, he then pulled him out.
The accident happened in a very volatile area [that's] notorious for riots, but the black community rallied together in notifying authorities, controlling traffic and risking their lives to assist the injured. Amen to the people of South Africa.
