The worst part? No one comes to her aid.

A disturbing video of a woman being hijacked in Chatsworth, Durban has surfaced on social media.

The video taken by another driver's dashcam shows the terrifying ordeal.

In the video, two cars are driving towards an intersection when the car in front of the Mercedes suddenly stops. Four men, seemingly carrying weapons, jump out of the car bang on the white Mercedes' windows for the driver to open the doors.

Eventually, the driver of the Mercedes opens her car door. At this point, the owner of the car recording the video sees the apparent danger, and switches lanes.
