Many people secretly dream of alcohol falling out of nowhere to help them quench their thirst. With SA having just come out of nearly seven months of lockdown and an alcohol ban, the number of people who couldn't wait to have a drink was enormous.

This is why when a truck loaded with beers crashed in Factoria, Krugersdorp, the scene was soon full of local residents who helped themselves to the crates full of alcohol which were spewed across the street around the truck.

Of course, Twitter users who witnessed the event via a video uploaded by Twitter user, Yusuf Abramjee, were quick to add their thoughts on the situation. Watch the video below.

While many Twitter users laughed and made jokes about the beer looting, others asked about the safety of the driver. Some people wondered out loud when something like this would happen around their neighbourhoods.

@Qualib_us said:

"Some people are lucky eyy."

@123mogudi asked:

"When are getting our time in Ekurhuleni?"

While this person, @thabisomashish1 pointed out that some people were not looting but helping to clean up the mess.

"Wait why did you say looting? It seems they are assisting in clearing the broken bottles from the road. Looting is taking unopened bottles."
