We have heard incredible stories where taxi, Grab and Uber drivers are being good samaritans.
Recently, another Grab driver is earning praise as he defied all traffic rules and all odds, as you may, just so he can bring his rider to St. Lukes Hospital in BGC.
In a Facebook post of Andrea Venice Yuson that PhilStar shared, she recalled how the Grab driver that she and her mom rode on the way to the hospital was nice enough to speed up and defy traffic lights, just so he can bring his rider to the hospital on time.
She posted how the driver did everything he could when he found out that Yuson’s mom was not feeling well.
“Pag akyat sa Market Market, talagang binubusinahan niya lahay ng nasa harap niya kahit naka stop traffic light.”
The driver blew his horn so that the other vehicles will give way to them and know that it is an emergency.
“Bandang BGC na kami busina padin siya ng busina binuksan niya yung bintana niya sinesenyasan niya yung mga gusto pang mauna kesa sakanya tas nagagalit siya di kami makadaan kasi sabe niya ’emergency nga e'”
Yuson also shared how the driver seemed affected and nervous, he even looked back at the mom and asked if she is still ok.
“Kita sa mukha niya nagagalit, nagaalala, sabay sabing, ‘pinagpapawisan ako, kaya niyo pa ba ma’am?'”
When they reached the traffic light, the driver beat the red light and also told the other driver that was trying to go ahead that this is an emergency.
“Binreak niya yung traffic light, e may dadaan kasi naka-go yung isa, sabi niya ‘sige mahuli ka emergency nga to eh, wala akong pakielam sainyo kahit magaway pa tayo.”
Because of the driver’s efforts, they were able to reach the hospital and Yuson’s mom was taken care of. When she tried to pay the driver, he refused and said that she should just take care of her mom.
“Unahin mo muna mama mo, tulungan mo muna siya.”
In the end, even when her mom told her to run after the driver so she can pay, the driver still did not accept the payment.
She also gave an update that her mom will be brought to the ICU for her Dengue Hemorrhagic condition.
