Saved from thugs

2018-06-26 06:01

A huge thank you to a good Samaritan and my hero Gavin Malgas, his son and the countless other people who came to my rescue on Monday 30 April when two young men tried to grab my bag in Vanguard Drive. My bag and all my belongings were safely returned to me.

It has become common to see people watching attacks on fellow citizens without helping. But because of their help my faith has been restored.

I was amazed at the response. They all came running from different directions of Vanguard Drive with cars parking everywhere. I just stood there like I was watching a movie.

I call them my protecting angels from God.
