Dirkie Stoffberg, who hails from Vereeniging, took to Facebook to share how Ungerer, a construction company owner, and his 'loyal workers' spent three hours to help a lady.
Last week Thursday at round 5pm, Ungerer went to a shopping centre in Vereeniging when he spotted a lady who looked distressed.
According to Stoffberg, who shared the story on IDestiny's Facebook page, Ungerer asked the woman if she was okay and she said she was not.
The lady revealed that the key forher gearlock broke - and, to top it off, no one wanted to help her and she had no idea what to do.
Ungerer phoned Stoffberg, who did not hesitate to go and help.
"When I got there he already tried numerous ways to see if he can solve the problem. After about 2 HOURS, around 7pm and already after hours, we realised that the only way to get the gearlock off is to get big tools and some power," Stoffberg wrote.
Briefly.co.za learned Ungerer phoned his workers, who loaded some tools and a generator for power. Without a second thought, the 'loyal' crew showed up with all the equipment to help the worried lady.
"Three hours later, at 8pm the gearlock was off and the lady could use her car again," Stoffberg said.
He added: "Innocentia Moshoeshoe is the lucky lady to be helped. She was so happy, she started crying of happiness and she could not stop thanking them all."
South Africans were inspired by the story and they praised the men for helping the woman.
Rosien Keyser commented: "It is such a joy to read about this ubuntu moment. Nothing can compare the feeling if you helped someone without expecting to be thanked. The pleasure is in the giving."
Martin Millar added: "This, although a small incident, is the type of incident that will help build this country into the powerhouse it once was! WELL DONE GUYS!!!"

There are bad people across all the races and there are also good people across all the races. The good people must unite and not allow themselves to be deceived and divided by some politicians!!!"
