A couple hit a bump in the road while travelling to Mpumalanga and were saved by the men in blue.

Willie Labuschagne was travelling with his fiancée Shani Dreyer and when they reached 40 kilometres out of Witbank, they hit a huge pothole which resulted in both the left front and back tires bursting.

“Two minutes after we pulled over a police van with these two great officers stopped to assist us. Officers Evans and Linda took both our flat wheels and rims and went to the nearest place that was able to assist with some tires and after a while they came back, and we put back the wheels and were on our way again.”

“I too have had a cut tyre by a sharp object on the road and was assisted brilliantly by two (male & female) Police of the Boscombe Police Station. There are outstanding elements in our Police, Force giving the public a sterling job.”

Viral video shows hero cop saving a little girl from drowning

Briefly News also wrote about a video which shows a policeman jumping into a flowing river to save a little girl who went missing from her home while playing with the son of her mom’s friend.

Sergeant Setjakadume Thobejane took off his uniform and jumped into the river the Blesbok River near Slovo Park, Springs in Ekurhuleni, to save a three-year-old girl, who held on for dear life or the water would have washed her away.

According to the Springs policeman, when he and his two fellow officers, Sergeant John Nkuna and Constable Solomon Mtshweni, found the little girl, she was wet, cold and crying.

The stream was so strong, Nkuna and Mtshweni had to hold Thobejane’s clothes so that he had something to hold onto while trying not to be swept away.
