Phillip Coetser, who may have been the victim of a robbery in peak traffic, caught up with the viral video and had this to say to Anton:

My friend, I was the man in the car and I want to really thank you for intervening. Sorry I did not thank you yesterday, but I was in a bit of a shock. I eventually ran over him with the car and unfortunately my laptop. The dent in the car is a minor price to pay for my safety and protection. May the God that created heaven and earth bless you abundantly in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ!

Many others have offered their congratulations to Anton, bigging him up for his display of bravery.

A user who goes by the name, SneakyRussian, commented on how the victim, Philip, may have been too shocked at the time to notice the good act Anton had committed.

Caron-Anne Best, on the other hand, stated that

“it’s nice to know there are still people out there willing to help. Thank you.”
