- A woman escaped a dangerous situation after a man climbed into her vehicle without her knowledge
- A couple driving behind her witnessed the man climbing in and followed her as she drove home
- They informed her when she stopped her bakkie and saved the day
Susannah Juliet Leigh drove home from Hout Bay and navigated the narrow road and pouring rain on her way.
Little did she know, hat a great danger lurked inside her own vehicle.
Rupert Bryant had been driving behind Leigh down the coastal road and told his friend and fellow passenger that he suspected the man could be trying to hijack her.
The pair decided to follow Leigh to ensure her safety and quickly informed her when she stopped in the suburb of Camps Bay in Cape Town.
Leigh was totally unaware of the man and was grateful that Bryant and his friend went the extra mile for her.
She took to Facebook to share her gratitude, but also warned others to lock their canopies when driving.
Briefly.co.za noted that the post went viral and sparked a huge reaction.
Cindy Gouldie said, “My take on this other than a wake-up call to being more security conscious is that Rupert Bryant is a hero. God bless you Rupert, you are a good person.”
Robbie Hall added, “Hope you gave whoever got into your bakkie a couple of good lefties.”
Tilana West commented, “Well done Rupert Bryant and friend. We need more proactive citizens like you.”
Sanelle le Grange said, “Thanks for being brave and having the heart to help this driver, this could have ended really bad, you guys are awesome. People like you makes SA a better place, takes me back 20 years even just for a moment.”
