This is when the incredibly brave young Europa decided to remedy the situation and get behind the wheel to drive the 30-40 relieved people to their specific destinations around the Cape Town area.

IOL reports that Europa had lied to the passengers by saying that he had prior experience with bus driving, despite having never driven one before in order to help them feel at ease.

According to the article, Europa has since asked the Golden Arrow Bus company to kindly offer him a job and replace the things that were stolen for him since he is the sole breadwinner in his home and also a father of one.

Meanwhile, social media users had this to say about Europa's brave act of courage that day:
