"I have been in ICU for the past days, this has been the most traumatic experience of my life. I was so close to losing my life, but my God said 'Not yet my child. Not yet.'

God protected me and my siblings from a very tragic accident, I am filled with gratitude," she wrote.

Their love and prayers keep me going. I don’t even know how to even begin thanking my mother @lerato_ld and my stepdad for all that they’ve done for me during this unpleasant time. I am surrounded by so much love, it’s truly heart-warming. I also have the best and kindest nurses, physio therapist, doctors and psychologists taking care of both my physical and mental health," she added.
