- Kinghom found a mom and toddler inside and learned about their car troubles
- The kind man went out of his way to help the family and it inspired SA
This is the country we want to live in - one where people help each other instead of turning a blind eye.
John Kinghom was on his way to work on Tuesday morning when he saw a broken-down car with a woman and her child in it.
The kind man explained the mom was in tears as she detailed what happened to the car. Briefly.co.za learned the family had hit a pothole and had been stuck at the side of the road since midnight.
Her hubby, Brian, then walked 7km back to Richmond in KwaZulu-Natal to look for help.
"After a couple off calls we got Brian, got the tyres fixed and they are on their way to Alexandra in JHB to continue with their lives there," Kinghom explained.
The Good Samaritan added:
"South Africa is a great country with great people, we the people get to decide if we are positive nation builders or negative couch potatoes that look at all the problems. One random act of kindness can go a long way in changing another person's perspective and future. So let's get building."
The story gave Mzansi hope that unity is possible in the country and that there are still good people out there.
Shereen Louw commented: "Wonderful act of kindness, Thank you so much....God Bless you Sir."
Paul Hendricks added: "Awesome, let’s keep being our best versions!! I’m loving this page."
Giovanna Ferla Silva said: "Thank you for helping this precious family, may you be blessed always."
