Hair-raising photography recorded inside a cash-in-transit car below attack on a busy Pretoria boulevard has put a spotlight on the war-fancy scenarios faced by security officers in SA.
In the three-minute-long video, a security officer is driving with a colleague. Both are wearing bulletproof vests. A whole lot of loud bangs signal they’re below attack and the driver, who retains a fab head at some stage in the ordeal, instantly takes evasive action.
A volley of bullets hits the Land Cruiser however the driver manoeuvres thru site visitors to sprint. His bulletproof aspect window is partially shattered. He instructs his colleague to remove a rifle and cock it as the chase continues.

The automobile jerks forward and comes to a end. The driver takes the rifle and gets out of the automobile to confront their attackers.
