The selfless act of two police officers and a car guard was noticed by one motorist and his social media post gave them the recognition they deserve.
Many people love the catchphrase ‘sometimes heroes don’t wear capes’ and it was particularly relevant in a recent story shared via social media.
Three gentlemen were keeping motorists safe without any fuss or acclaim.
Their consideration and efforts would have gone unnoticed were it not for Satish Dhupelia.
He shared their short story via Facebook earlier this week and it struck a chord with social media users.
His post explained that a drain cover had somehow slipped down a drain on a busy road.
Two police officers and a car guard quickly sensed the risk it posed to motorists and were seen lying face down trying to remedy the situation.
Were it not for Satish, their selfless act would have gone unnoticed, but he enabled them to get the credit they deserve.
Briefly.co.za noted the reaction to his post and many were blown away by the three heroes.

Sarita Shirley Jaichand commented: “Absolutely just commendation & praise. Start with the positives. What a great way to start a morning.”
