A mother's instinct is to protect her children in times of danger. That's exactly what happened in a Capetonian Bakery. A group of armed robbers attempted to rob the bakery and security footage showed how the mom laid on top of her child to keep her safe.
A security camera recorded the moment when robbers tried to rob a bakery in Cape Town on Friday.
The video shows how the group of men pretended to be looking at the food on display when one suddenly jumped over a counter. Another one pulled out a gun.
The customers were forced to stay inside the Delite Bakery as the men attempted to rob the bakery. They failed to get away with anything.
The video also shows a mother shielding her child as they laid on the floor. When she realised no one could flee from the shop, she did what she could to keep her child safe. A frightened young boy curled up next to the woman and her child.
The men then leave apparently leave empty-handed.
Since the incident happened, customers are scared of going into the bakery. The manager confirmed that the incident happened and says he now has protection from an armed response company.
