An escort driver in South Africa is praised for his ability and his cool serenity in attack. “Chuck Norris has officially been dethroned,” joked many viewers after looking at the dashboard camera footage on social media of the driver and his passenger in a black Audi being shot at by AK 47 suspects.
The video footage from the car camera was uploaded to Twitter by Yusuf Abramjee, the advocate of social cohesion, and said, “Escort Vehicle attacked. The driver rammed the two cars of the attackers. “
According to the timestamp on the footage, the incident occurred on April 22nd at around 10:25 a.m.
The shooting reportedly took place at the intersection of N4 Pretorius Street in Hatfield, Pretoria. The armored vehicle shown in the video, a land cruiser, accompanied a courier truck that carried cell phones.
The driver purposely bumped into the Audi and then chased it into the premises of a Southern Sun Hotel. According to a message from SA Long Distance Truckers, the suspects jumped out and one ran into the local MacDonalds while one or more others fled the scene.

SA Long-Distance Truckers said: “The most dangerous job in South Africa … How good is this driver?”
South Africans have praised the driver for his years of experience, which clearly paid off as he was able to bravely and quickly perform movements that would put even Chuck Norris to shame! As many South Africans said, “Give this man a bell.”
The passenger’s critics were advised that most young men would have reacted the same at that scary moment.
