A female student of the University of Johannesburg fought off armed robbers to save her thesis.
Footage from security cameras in a suburb of the South African city Johannesburg shows the moment a student was attacked by armed robbers.
Noxolo Ntusi, a medical scientist doing a master’s degree at the University of Johannesburg, fought to hold on to the bag containing a hard drive with the only copy of her thesis.
“I was thinking about my master’s. I’m almost done with what I’m writing; there’s no way I will let them take it,” the 26-year-old told the BBC.
“It wasn’t very smart but I guess it worked.”
Ms Ntusi has since backed up her thesis. She says she would not advise others to do what she did.
