- Ansie Swanepoel was on her way to work when she saw an accident
- She joined 4 other women to help a victim who was covered in cement
- They stabilised him until an ambulance arrived
Five heroic women didn't mind being covered in cement while helping a stranger who was the victim of a car accident recently.
Writing on Facebook, Ansie Swanepoel said she was driving through Brackenhurst in Alberton when she saw an accident scene.
She immediately stopped, grabbed her rescue kit, and rushed to help four women who were attending to a victim named George. He was covered in cement.
Ansie handed her breathing assistance kit to one of the women to help stabilise George. She also wiped off cement from his face and got a bath sheet from her car to keep him warm.
All the while, Ansie was amazed that men who had gathered around them did nothing to help. Amazingly, even a paramedic who arrived with the ambulance took his time to help.
Eventually, paramedics took charge of the scene and the ladies withdrew. Ansie noticed that they hadn't even noticed how dirtied they had become from the cement:
We, as women took charge and reached out to a man none of us knew. None was concerned about the wet cement getting onto our clothes and shoes. All of us were concerned about only one thing and that was George.
Ansie added that at the grassroots level, race doesn't matter. She appealed to politicians to unite South Africans from all racial backgrounds:
We are one nation under God... it is time that this message is the message that echoes throughout our beautiful country!
