A group of Good Samaritans has been hailed for helping out two men who were trapped in an overturned cash-in-transit vehicle.
The inspiring story was shared on Positive Racial Sentiments in SA's Facebook page yesterday, Briefly.co.za gathered.
One of the Good Samaritans, Leo Pistorius, said the incident happened along a highway through Outeniqua Pass, Western Cape.
Leo narrated what happened:
We just stumbled upon an accident. Our first thoughts were that it is a 'cash heist' and we were very concerned about bombs.
The young men in the vehicle were very nervous, probably afraid that the vehicle might catch fire with them inside. Jason Kearney got their keys in his hands and could get them outside.
The accident left bank notes strewn all over the highway. South Africans on social media applauded the Good Samaritans for helping the drivers without looting the cash.
Marianne Lotter said, "#IlovemySA it's stories like this that prove that we have amazing good people in our SA!"
Bravo Soko also said:
Thanks for helping them get out of the vehicle. Others wouldn't have seen that as important - they would have rather helped themselves to pick up those papers lying around and jumped into their cars and drove off.
