My heart goes out to the individuals involved in tonight’s terrible train attack.
As we pulled up to Zetlers petrol-station, next to Lyndoch train station tonight, one man stubbled up to the window and collapsed, dripping with blood. Luckily myself, Izette and Quinton was there, Izette & Quinton are medically trained and proceeded to administer trauma-care and stabilized him, whilst I contacted the police and kept the gathering onlookers at bay. He was attacked on the train, stabbed in the head with a knife, which broke off in his skull.
Special thanks goes out to the security team of AM-security & TSU-tactical unit who arrived promptly on the scene and helped us contact the ER services who arrived after and hour…
We just found out that 11 hard working men where not only attacked on the train but where THROWN OFF the train!!
Rest in peace to the one man who did not survive the attack after he was thrown off the moving train. He was found with 9 other men lying on the train tracks, after being mugged, beaten and stabbed.
This makes me absolutely sick of the country that we live in, that 5 men can attack, assault and murder hard working men returning back from work using public-transport.
Just because you are not directly part of the day to day struggles of the working-class of South Africa, do not think that everything is all & well is South Africa. This was a massive wake-up call and that we as a nation MUST stand together and stop the hand-ful of absolute “monsters” that terrorize the hard working people that are just trying to survive.
My heart goes out to those affected and I really hope they recover and have the support they desperately need.
