A woman has taken to social media to praise a kind tow-truck driver who saved her after she was stranded on the road. Her story inspired Mzansi, who applauded the man for his kindness.
On Monday, Michelle Vorster was on her way home when she ran out of petrol on Witkoppen Road.
Stuck on the road in the night with no help, Vorster began to panic, fearing that someone would drive into her.
"Nobody stopped to ask if I was okay, in fact, some people were hooting at me although I had my hazards on," she said.
However, Briefly.co.za learned that Vorster said a tow-truck driver "came as if sent from Heaven" and stopped to ask if she was okay.
The man offered to tow her to the nearest garage at no charge because he was worried about her safety.
"When I got into the tow truck he told me he couldn't just leave me there because I am a woman alone," she said.
Vorster added the driver waited at the garage to make sure her car started before going on his own way.
"Thank you kind sir, I am forever grateful for your act of kindness. You have restored my faith in humanity," she ended her post.
The story inspired social media users who applauded the tow-truck driver for his kindness.
Sonja Logan commented: "I salute you Sir! May you be abundantly blessed."
Martin Millar added: "These are the stories and people that will be instrumental in making this country great again."
Dawn Duke wrote: "Thank you for going out of your way to help."
