After the ghastly accident in which fitness Bunnie, Sbahle Mpisane, was trapped in her car, more revelations have continued to emerge, as many are still praying and expecting her full recovery.
Brian Dube, a personal trainer from Durban, spoke to Drum on how he saved Sbale from the car wreckage.
Brian, who lives 5-10 minutes away from the accident scene said that he was awake getting ready for work when he heard a loud noise of a car colliding into a tree.
As soon as I opened the curtain to look out the window, I saw that it was a lady driving but I hadn’t realised it was Sbahle Mpisane at the time. All I saw was a lady in the car which was already burning” said Brian.
He explained how he grabbed a fire extinguisher and rushed to the scene in fear that the car would explode if he waited any longer.
“It was hard for me to stand and watch her burning in the car even though I didn’t know if she was alive or not. I got there and extinguished the fire with the help of another male who had witnessed the crash.”
“I stood there for 10-15 minutes trying to see whether she was still alive and after a short while she moved her arm.”
Brain goes on to add how he alerted the two police officers that were at the scene to call the ambulance because she was still alive.
“I couldn’t believe that she was still alive because her car was wrecked, especially on her side. The driver’s side the door was out… it was not attached to the car anymore,” he added.
I couldn’t watch that car explode in front of my eyes having seen that there was someone inside… so I had to risk my life just to make sure the fire was extinguished.”
Meanwhile, Sbahle is said to have opened her eyes for the first time since the accident about a week ago.
