A woman has thanked a car guard for restoring her faith in humanity. After her tyre got a puncture at a mall, she struggled to replace it with the spare. Many walked right past her without helping until Vusi came to her rescue.
Jenny Avery shared the story on the "ImStaying" group on Facebook. She and her mother were battling with a flat tyre; motorists drove past them and nobody offered to help.
"In fact one guy walked past the car so fast he might have broken the land speed record, I guess he didn't want to make eye contact in case he'd have to help."
They eventually managed to remove the spare tyre and started attempting to loosen the nuts of the flat one. A man named Vusi, a car guard nearby, approached them and quietly started changing the tyre.
"He seemed genuinely surprised when I asked to take his photo, and when I told him that I was going to put his pic on this Facebook group."
She thanked him for restoring her faith in humanity. She also added that she gave him money for his efforts. Social media users had kind words for Vusi. Faceboook user Leonie Ferreira Clark said:
"Well done Vusi, we need more people like you too reached out were somebody needs help."
Shimmy Bashemane said:
"You and Vusi are a beautiful kind of people, if we all can keep it up like that... South Africa can be a beautiful country nobody would ever want to leave... big up to both you."
