A video, which was shared with South Africa Live by social media user @Oly_Diko, has stunned South Africans.

The footage showed baggage handlers removing passengers' suitcases after a plane landed at King Shaka airport in Durban.

A passenger onboard the plane filmed the workers tossing the baggage into a vehicle for transportation.

“I personally took this video today as I landed at King Shaka. I’m shocked" - @Oly_Diko said.

South Africans were shocked by the handlers' lack of professionalism and said there are people who would have loved to do the job with care.

Lerato Lehoahoa commented:

"While I understand how strenuous their job is but throwing those bags, that way is just extreme carelessness."

Tshivhodza Tshikukunambula added:

"Where there is no supervision, always expect this kind of (thing). I'm not surprised."

Cee Jay wrote:

"This is so bad. Think about your bag that you have been taking care of and it is thrown like that. No care at all. No professionalism!"

Lizette Van Zyl said:

"No respect for others. I am sure out there are people who will enjoy this job and do it with respect!"
