Girl seeking Samaritan 'Who saved my life
A Bloemfontein girl who was seriously injured in an accident would like to thank the man who helped her after the accident.
Nika Hancke, 17, whose pelvic bone was fractured, said the unknown man saved her life.
The man in his 40's held her hand all the while after the accident and assured her that everything will be right.
" If it was not for him, I would have given up courage." He had short hair, blue eyes and was dressed in a blue and grey shirt.
Nika's older sister, Carli, said she was being treated in the Pelonomi hospital in the city and was linked to a respiratory machine after developing blood clots in her lungs.
"She will probably be transferred to the high care unit."
Nika and three girlfriends were injured at 01:00 on Sunday when the driver of the car they drove had lost control of it.
The car drove over a curb into a sidewalk in Nelson Mandela Avenue before it hit a cement trash can and stopped.
The driver of the car was not injured, but the other three girls respectively sustained the following injuries, concussion, a wound on the shoulder and a fractured pelvic bone.
Nika says the unknown man who helped them was first on the scene and waited until paramedics arrived and she was taken to the hospital by ambulance. "I have to find him - he saved my life. I must thank him. "
