Corrie Sanders a real life hero right till the very end.
Corrie pictured here with his daughter Marinique.
Corrie died protecting Marinique from a hail of bullets when the robbers burst into the Thatch Haven Country Lodge near Brits.
Corrie took his 15-year-old daughter Marinique by the wrist and told her to lie down on the floor next to him.
Sanders then told her to play dead as three of the robbers fired shots into the floor next to the heads of some of the patrons and threatened them with knives.
One of those bullets struck Sanders in his arm, before piercing his side and entering his abdomen.
No greater sacrifice can there ever be than a father who lays down his life in protecting and saving his child.
R.I.P. Corrie, we will miss you but we will never forget you.
