Motorist describes miraculously escaping Franschhoek Pass rock fall
Capetonian Mark Thackwray had a narrow escape over the weekend after he found himself trapped in a life-threatening rock fall on Franschhoek Pass.
Speaking to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies Thackwray says he believes he has been a second chance to live.
He says he as soon as the car came to a stop, all passengers ran as fast as they could as heavy rocks continued falling on the car.
When the first rock hit the car it started spinning. It hit it so hard the back of the car lifted off the ground...Mark Thackwray, Survivor
This made me realise what's going on around me and what I have. Life is shorter than you think and it can end at any time.Mark Thackwray, Survivor
