Close Call For SAA Crew

Mon Feb 13, 2006 5:22 pm

It is so sad to see that one of the most beautiful countries in the world is still badly plagued by violent crime. This time ‘round it even led to the cancellation of a SAA domestic flight.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

The next moment, a robber appeared next to the bus and fired a shot through the closed window.

The bullet hit the dashboard below which the pilot and co-pilot were cowering.

The robbers fired several more shots around the security vehicle, but left empty-handed in two bakkies shortly afterwards.

The co-pilot was slightly wounded by a glass shard that hit him in the knee after the shot was fired through the window.
