HOW THE HEADLINE “FATHER GUNNED DOWN IN FRONT OF FAMILY” CHANGED TO “ HIJACKER INJURED AS FAMILIES BULLET RESISTANT CAR SAVES THE DAY”

Bullets flew in the leafy suburb of Bedfordview on a quiet Sunday night as a hijacking went horribly wrong, horribly wrong for the hijackers that is!

A family, returning from a Sunday outing pulled into their driveway, and were immediately surrounded by armed assailants who had followed them. Unbeknown to the hijackers the family were driving a vehicle that had been armored by Armormax, South Africa’s leading experts in the armoring of luxury vehicles.

The hijackers immediately fired two shots at the driver, who reacted quickly and reversed out of the driveway, running over the leg of one of the assailants in the process. The hijackers fired another two shots, which hit the windscreen. In spite of this the family were able to drive to safety.

As was to be expected, the result of the shooting was “Zero Penetration” the ultimate goal of the team at Armormax.

This is the fourth attack on our vehicles in three months, and brings the total of lives saved in the attacks to seven. “Despite the recently released crime statistics, we are experiencing a marked increase in attacks”, says Grant Anderson Managing director of Armormax. “This case gives you a chilling insight onto the mind of the hijackers who were prepared to gun down a father in front of his wife and two young children. We are seeing an increasing number of clients who have made the decision that although SA is a fantastic country, the reality is that violent crime is still an issue, and two crucial areas, their homes and vehicles need to be able to withstand an attack. Our vehicles provide total security in an area that was once the most vulnerable.”

Its difficult to quantify the value of these lives, what’s a dad worth to his wife and family, both in emotional and financial terms? What impact does the loss of a senior executive have on the company and employees?

Difficult question to answer, but thanks to Armormax these clients are still there for their loved ones and dependants.

For us at Armormax and International armoring Corporation, another seven lives to add to the total of all most 500 lives saved by our vehicles.
