The internet is raving about cargo driver Leo Prinsloo, who stayed calm under an armed attack during a recent delivery in Gauteng and foiled the hijackers’ plans.
Prinsloo is in fact a former member of the SAPS Special Task Force, and currently works as a security training instructor at Fortis Pro Active Defence Solutions.
He and his colleague, Lloyd Mthombeni can be seen on dashcam footage reacting to an attempted robbery on the highway. Both kept calm and collected, not panicking as the bullets can be heard hitting their vehicle. Prinsloo barely blinked an eye when he realised the vehicle is under fire. Mthombeni quietly loaded a weapon and seemed to alert authorities about the situation on a cell phone.
The vehicle was bullet-proof and neither of the two security officers was injured.
They are being praised for their brave and heroic behaviour during the incident, and we are all glad the men and their cargo are safe. An investigation is currently ongoing.
