The 42-year-old woman from Alberton who rammed her vehicle into a gang of hijackers in her driveway says she’s no hero.
She simply did what she thought best, to protect her teenage daughter who was with her in the car, she told News24.
Speaking to News24 on condition of anonymity, for fear of her family’s safety, the woman said she is afraid the men will return to her home.
Her arm is swollen and badly bruised after the incident, which happened on the afternoon of Monday, August 27.
“My nine-month-old grandson would have been in the car with us, had it not been for a change of plans,” she told News24, with tears welling up in her eyes.
CCTV footage of the incident was widely circulated on social media. Many people hailed her a hero, while others called her stupid.
In part, these comments prompted her to set the record straight in a sit-down interview with News24. Subscribe to News24: https://www.youtube.com/user/News24Video
