Bloemfontein residents banded together to get two vehicles stuck in the dense mud in Langenhovenpark this morning. Bloemfontein Courant discovered a group of students and other residents attempting to remove a Toyota Hilux and another bakkie out of mud.


Bloemfontein has been experiencing heavy rains for the past few days resulting in floods across the city. This is when residents turned a troubling situation into an opportunity to lend a helping hand.

According to a student they were playing in the rain at Stuck in the Mud, an off road motorbiking area in Langenhovenpark when one of the cars got stuck. They tried to pull it out when the second vehicle also became fixed in the dirt.

Residents are warned to take precaution while driving in the heavy rain as accidents are more likely to occur. – Nomaqhawe Mtebele
