- A stranger appeared and assisted her until her car was able to drive safely again
A woman shared a story about the kindness of a stranger recently. While speeding on the road, her tyre burst and forced her to stop. Stranded in the middle of nowhere, the woman was fearing the worst until a kind man pulled up beside her.
Mpho Pelele-Tlholakae shared her story on the Facebook group "ImStaying". After speeding at 140km/h, her car tyre gave in and forced her to pull over.
She was stranded in the middle of nowhere between Rustenburg and Mafikeng when a stranger pulled up beside her car. He proceeded to help her by changing the tyre but they discovered that her spare tyre was flat too.
The man drove in front of her as they looked for a nearby garage, which turned out to be closed. He then took her to his farm and asked his father to assist. They pumped the wheel and ensured that she was back on the road safely.
They then drove to another garage where he purchased something to patch the spare tyre.
The grateful woman could not stop gushing about the man's kindness and thanked him profusely. Social media users were impressed by the kind act but also called out the woman for not adhering to the speed limit. Facebook user Adam Weilbach said:
"Well the limit is there for your safety and that of others."
While Leaza Tobias said:
"140 in a Spark is way too fast - very dangerous speed for such a small car. But glad you didn't roll or crash, and that there was a real Good Samaritan to help you. Your guardian angel was working really hard to keep you safe - please don't test her again by driving so fast."
Rodney Emmerich said:
"Clearly you were not driving faster than your guardian angels could fly."
