In more heartwarming Briefly.co.za news, Melissa Adamo was having a "blue Monday" yesterday and decided to push her car a little harder, even though the "no petrol" light had been flashing for a couple of days. Unfortunately, she ran out of petrol in the middle of Sandton.
Melissa was now stuck on the side of the road not knowing who to call or what to do in this situation. That's when Fortunate pulled up next to her to ask if she was okay. Melissa explained her situation to him and he jumped into action.
Fortunate first put up the orange triangle a distance away from her car before driving her to the nearest garage. After locating a bottle big enough to fill her tank with petrol, they got the petrol attendant to cut a funnel and drove back to her car.
