The George primary school teacher who was shot by her ex boyfriend on Thursday said she was willing to forgive him for everything he has put her through.
The man approached Annette Erasmus on Wednesday morning and shot her in the chest and shoulder after an argument.
The 39-year-old man then shot himself in the head.
Erasmus said the man had sent her threatening messages before the shooting.
She explained to Eyewitness News what happened.
‘At first when he took out the gun I thought it was a toy gun. However, after he fired the first shot I realised it wasn’t a game anymore. I thought I was going to die,’ she said.
