It’s been a month since Tiaan Coetzer and his wife had to fight for their lives.

On Monday, July 16, at about 5:45, Coetzer and his wife were nearly hijacked at their business premises in Robertsham, south of Johannesburg.

"We were only planning on making a quick stop at the office and then head home, but as we were approaching the gate we noticed an unfamiliar Audi following us."

"We were only planning on making a quick stop at the office and then head home, but as we were approaching the gate we noticed an unfamiliar Audi following us."

Coetzer said they felt uneasy and decided to spring into action.

"My wife was in the driver's seat. We quickly knew what was about to happen."

The 33-year-old said rather than surrender, they decided to fight.

"We made a pact that we were in it to win it."

this is stupid, I don't see any smart thinking here. I see someone who was lucky they didn't get their brains blown out

They could've been shot. Very risky to do that, don't think they "outsmarted" them. But glad it was a good outcome.

Umm... After reversing I would have deliberately driven over the hijacker crushing his legs and then head for the gate because there won't be another attempt from him again.

I wouldn’t quite call that outsmarting them, It looks like survival instinct to me. Fight or flight. I may have just tried to run them over as a first instinct.

I don't know if I would call that "Outsmarting" but, get away, they sure did.

They did the right thing for driving away.
They might had been shot dead anyway.
