- A woman was on her way home after she dropped her hubby off at OR Tambo Airport
- She saw her car was warning about low tyre pressure and she stopped at a petrol station
- A selfless petrol attendant, Richard, came to her rescue
On Tuesday, a woman, Leana Bruwer Potgieter, was dropping her husband off at OR Tambo at 4am.
She revealed in a post on #ImStaying that her car "started screaming" about low tyre pressure but they looked it over, coming to the conclusion that she had a slow puncture.
On her way back, Potgieter, who is pregnant and had a two-year-old in the back seat, stopped at an Ultra City on the R24 to make sure there was enough air in the tyres.
She wrote: "When I stopped at the pumps Richard came straight to me and started reassuring me that everything will be okay and he will help me as I have a nail in two tyres."
Richard offered to fix the punctures with a repair kit that he brings to work to help customers after seeing a lot of people coming in with the problem.
She ended her post with:
"He was so selfless and humble and I don't think he will ever know how his very small act of helping me saved my day."
Earlier this year, another petrol attendant was hailed a hero after he made sure a young woman returned home safely.
Briefly.co.za reported at the time that the petrol attendant went viral after he paid for a woman's fuel. South Africans were so impressed by his act of kindness that they raised a massive amount of money for him on a BackaBuddy campaign.
