Motorists were left angered and deeply shocked when a man threw a small girl from his BMW next to the R21 last week. According to shocked and disturbed witnesses, the girl couldn't be anything more than one-year-old.
Motorists driving on the R21 between Kempton Park and Boksburg were enraged when they saw a man throw a little girl from his car onto the grass next to the highway.
A witness to the shocking even, Richard Potgieter, said he was driving to Boksburg with a friend when they saw what happened.
According to a report by Zululand Observer, Richard, the father of a 3-year-old, said the girl can't be older than a year.
Richard captured the incident on his car's dashcam but the footage is very unclear.
However, Richard remembers clearly what happened.
The man threw the girl, who can’t be much older than one, on the grass next to the highway and climbed back into his silver BMW. Around eight vehicles, including us, stopped on the scene. When the man saw all the cars, he ran back to get the child and sped off.
It was terrible to witness. I was so angry and disappointed that I cried.
Briefly.co.za gathered that there was a woman in the BMW as well, but she remained seated during the incident.
One of the drivers tried to chase the man but didn't succeed.
