The carjackers had guns. His weapon? Persistence, survival instincts. He kept on walking.
This guy got carjacked in a routine drive to the city. He’s left with hands in his head, and nothing else — no money, no phone.
His grief is compounded with more obstacles as he tries to navigate his way back to the city. Drivers on this stretch of road were hostile and armed.
But there was no way he would live at the mercy of fate.
He picked himself up, kept on walking. Then, fate rewarded him with a poetic justice.
