An alarming video has gone viral via social media as an attempted hijacking was caught on camera.
In the video, a woman can be seen approaching her driveway with a vehicle, followed closely by another car.
After a slight pause, the quick-thinking lady senses danger and decides to speed away from the area.
A group of thugs emerge from the other vehicle and it quickly becomes apparent that a hijacking is in progress.
As the woman tries to make her getaway, the men fire shots at her vehicle and she’s hit by one of the bullets.
The story has a happy ending as the woman escaped and survived the gunshots.
Intelligence Bureau SA shared the video via Facebook and based on the comments, social media users were disgusted by what they saw.
Briefly.co.za understands the incident took place in Johannesburg and the assailants allegedly drove a vehicle they also used for taxi-hailing services.
Johann Roodt commented, “This country is OUT of control.”
Ridwaan Ismail said, “She was very sharp to notice something was amiss and also reacted fairly quickly. Hope she gets well soon, "shot but okay" she sounds tough as nails! May justice prevail in this once beautiful country.”
Pozesa Xii added, “Uber and taxi fi has done two things given some criminals access to cars and also opened them up to understanding these areas more. Taxi fi has a very poor vetting program. And also these guys are making no money they just work to have access to a car.”
Ntata Mafahla Tsephe responded, “We are all held hostage in your own backyard, and it's not getting any better,we need to find out own solution to this madness, perhaps it's high time that we fight fire with fire.”
