In other news about good Samaritans, Briefly.co.za recently reported on a grateful South African woman received help after her car got stuck. Sonja Mancos recently headed to Facebook's ImStaying group to share how she recently experienced her beautiful #ImStaying moment after her car had gotten stuck on the side of the road.
In the post, Sonja explains that she had a tyre burst that left her stranded with her mom and her daughters on the side of the road. Not long thereafter, not one but two cars stopped and the occupants offered the stranded family assistance.
"My mom, daughters and I were travelling in Seweweekspoortpas when I had a blowout. We had 2 cars pulling over, with willing volunteers to help us. They really sped up the process and got us safely on our way. Thank you! That's why #ImStaying," she wrote happily
