An attempted robbery in Pretoria resulted in dramatic footage being captured as armed robbers shot at a vehicle multiple times.  

The driver, Leo Prinsloo, fought off an intense and dangerous armoured car heist attempt. He tried to manoeuvre himself and his partner to safety and thanks to his clear thinking and bravery, they’re lucky to be alive!  

The dashcam footage of the incident shows two men driving in a bulletproof vehicle. Seconds later, bullets can be seen hitting the windows as the two men in the vehicle remain calm and think of their next move - planning for survival.

Months later, Nando’s released an ad which features Leo!
