- Xabiso Diamond and his colleagues were approached by Siyabonga and jumped into action
- Siyabonga shared a heartfelt post to the #ImStaying group on Facebook to thank Xabiso and his colleagues
When Siyabonga Gwexe's wife had difficulty breathing while at a petrol station he approached a nearby paramedic for help. Xabiso Diamond was transporting a patient and stopped to fill petrol into his ambulance.
Xabiso called his colleagues over with an oxygen cylinder while he examined Siyabonga's wife. Siyabonga noted that he didn't want to take his wife to any hospital as he felt it was too risky and she may not have been assisted in time.
According to his post on the #ImStaying group, Siyabonga said the paramedics worked together to assist his wife and ensure she was in good health before they left the petrol station.
Read the conclusion of Siyabonga's post below:
"In no time the other paramedics came and pumped oxygen to my wife, who after a while coughed and came back to her senses. The other paramedics were very kind too... Afterwards, I drove to Cape Town as it was my destination.
"I am glad to report that now she is fine, because of these fine public servants who risk their lives to save fellow human beings."
Stayers felt touched by the Xabiso and his colleagues kind deed. Read some of their comments below:

In other news about good Samaritans, Briefly.co.za recently reported on a grateful lady who thanked a man for giving her a ride when she was stranded. Evo Dia shared the story of the kind man that came to her rescue after she was left stranded by a train miles away from her home.
Her post included a nice picture of herself and the kind man whose name she did not mention. She did, however, say that he had taken her to Frankford which was a whole 27 miles away from where she was left stranded.
"Masks were removed only for the photo... This guy took us to Frankford which is 27km from where we were stranded, failed by a train without thinking twice. Our lives were in danger as there was no road coming to the point. Because of this beautiful soul I'm Staying," she wrote with a heart full of gratefulness.
