This video shows how a Mercedes driver manages to escape a hijacking.
In a video shared on the Autobumbum Facebook page, CCTV footage shows how a driver enters a parking lot only to be confronted by two armed hijackers who jump out of an Audi that has been following him.
He does not hesitate and reverses through them, with one hijacker trying to cling to the door, and drives out the park, sideswiping the hijacker's car in the process and drives off leaving the hijackers stunned. They eventually run to their car and drive away.
Some say he was brave while others say it was a risky move.
