Sadly, this is too much of a regular occurence in South Africa… but of the many traumatic stories, there’s always the bit that inspires and makes me stand tall with a shout of “Hoo-rah!”

Chris Herbst- just an ordinary hero

For me, this epitomises the role of husband and father… willing to lay down his life to protect his family and sparing nothing to save his wife and kids. In this instance, he survives too, after being shot in the jaw and stabbed [hacked] in the back and the neck several times! Incredible reading!

To Chris Herbst… Hoo-rah!
