Cape Town – People with canopies have been warned to ensure that a would-be robber or hijacker doesn't climb into the back of their bakkie without their knowledge.
Capetonian Susannah Juliet Leigh posted a video on social media yesterday of the incident and commented that a couple probably saved her life by driving behind her all the way along the coastal road from Hout Bay to Camps Bay.
The couple could be heard saying in the video: "He is breaking into the car and he is going to hijack her."
"A man climbed into the back of my canopy while I was driving home at night from Hout Bay. I had no idea he had gotten into the back," Leigh said.
"It was very dark and rainy and windy. He climbed into the back on Victoria Road.
