A disturbing video was posted on YouTube on Saturday which showed KwaZulu-Natal locals stealing from a crash victim's car.
On 27 October, CCTV footage of a car accident in Durban CBD was posted on social media. According to South Africa LIVE, the driver lost control of his car and crashed into a palisade fence.
Witnesses rushed to the crash site, however, instead of helping the crash victim, they started to loot the man's vehicle.
Briefly.co.za gathered the group, which consisted of both men and women, where caught on video taking everything they could.
One man was even spotted casually walking away after he stole the victim's laptop.
Meanwhile another similar incident took place in Gauteng earlier this year, which showed a massive group looting an overturn truck, which carried washing powder. The incident was also filmed and posted on Facebook.
The footage sparked quite the reaction on social media, but South Africans were left divided. Some accused the looters of a crime while others said they were just exercising their rights as SA citizens.
Hennie Mudau wrote, "Those things are insured so that's not looting,They just practicing their rights!I would do the same if I was there."
