Happened this morning 8th Jan in Wonderboom, Pretoria area. Fellow South Africans assisting each other and caring for the injured this morning after the head-on collision between two trains. Way to go!
The photos inspired hundreds of South Africans on social media, Briefly.co.za learned.
Lebo Tshotheli commented:
This country will not go to ruin because South Africans have so much Love & Love is the Greatest.
Maureen Dunmore added:
Such CARING and we ALL know what to do when tragedy strikes....amazingly everyone working together without fear or favour.
Bev Botha said it's just a few politicians attempting to divide South Africans:
When I see the people coming together like this to help each other to get through such an experience, my first thought is - dump the politicians in our country as they are the cause of the racism which we see and hear about on a daily basis, albeit from the 'select' few and not from the majority. Well done and Salute to all those helping hands.
