Carla Wreghitt was left panicked, waiting for help on a dangerous stretch of highway, after her tyre went flat… but then kind South Africans stopped to help her!
Durban, South Africa – Everyone fears breaking down in a dangerous area and always hopes it never happens to them. This is what happened to Carla; she got a flat tyre while driving on the M19 in Durban. The road is notorious for protest action, accidents and unsavoury characters, it is no place to be stranded alone.
As Carla pulled her car over to a safe spot, panic rose in her chest as she realised the predicament she found herself in. She was petrified and hoped help would arrive soon.
Help definitely did arrive, two inspectors of the SPCA pulled over to offer assistance to Carla as well as a gentleman from FTS Safety, an occupational safety and health service provider. The three men calmed Carla and helped get her back on the road quickly and without incident.
Carla was so thankful for their involvement and asked to take their picture to share the story with others. The three men were heroes in her eyes and deserved a shoutout for the kindness.
“What amazing men, my heroes today!
Stuck, petrified on the M19 with a very flat tyre in the most dangerous part and these guys so selflessly stopped and were so willing to help me. So thankful for the three of you!!
SPCA Durban & FTS Safety – your people rock”
These men are what we call everyday heroes. They didn’t do anything out of the ordinary but inspired hope with their efforts. Well done to the three men!
