A kind-hearted farmer recently took a truck driver to the ocean for the first time in his life. The trucker, only identified as Aaron, had never seen the sea with his own eyes in his 46 years on earth.
According to the SA Long-distance Truckers Facebook page, Aaron was in the Namaqualand district to deliver feed for farmers in need.
While he was talking to the farmers, he heard that the ocean is only 20 kilometres away from the area. His only wish after he heard that was to go to the ocean and walk in the water.
After offloading his truck, one of the farmers identified as Jasper drove Aaron to go frolic in the water for the first time.
Jasper also took pics of the priceless moments. Aaron couldn't believe it when he finally took a walk in the ocean. Social media users have praised Jasper for his good deed.
