The N3 highway in Johannesburg, South Africa, was the scene of drama on Monday afternoon as robbers opened fire on two Jewish men, a father and his son, wounding both of them, reported South Africa’s eNCA news service.
The N3 Highway connects Johannesburg and Durban and is divided into 12 sections, starting with section 1 in Durban and ending with section 12 in Johannesburg.
The two men had just drawn money from a bank in Edenvale and were traveling on the N3 North, just before the Buccleuch Interchange, when they were shot at by five robbers, wielding AK47 machine guns.
Edenvale is a quiet town near Johannesburg.
Police say that the men were robbed of a substantial amount of money before the robbers managed to flee the scene.
The men were rushed to hospital in a serious condition, with the son’s condition originally graded critical. He is recovering, and is to be released from ICU by the end of the week.
