"He was heavily bleeding from his upper body, the head specifically. I bandaged him, and assisted as necessary to prevent further blood loss," he said.

Even though he is unemployed on the moment, Khunjwa did not hesitate to assist because he does not see his profession as a job, he views it as a way of life.

"I live it daily, it's within me, 24 hours a day, employed or not," he added.
