The image inspired South Africans and it showed people could see past race and help each other. So, it did not take long for social media users to track down the heroic young man.

According to GoodThingsGuy, the selfless hero is 20-year-old Shaun Boshoff, who is a student at the TSC Pretoria West Campus.

Boshoff, a motorcycle enthusiast, said he and his parents were on their way to view a motorbike when they saw two people in trouble.

He jumped off his father's bakkie and rushed to help a young woman and her dad.

"I walked through the water and saw the car was flooded inside and the girl panicking inside struggling to get out. I then helped the girl out hurling her over my shoulder and carrying her out of harm’s way then helped the father get out as well,” he explained what happened.

Boshoff did not want recognition for his brave actions, he helped the father and daughter, got back in his dad's bakkie and continued on with his day.

However, as Briefly.co.za reported previously, a photo of his good deed made its way on social media and South Africans praised him for his act of kindness.
