This is a very much overdue post on complimenting a kind soul, Mr Moola Imran Yacoob driving SFK43Y. My late dad had…
On 4th April 2018, a woman published on her Facebook messages of gratitude to a kind Grab driver, who went all out to help her sick father. Calling it a ‘much overdue’ post to commend the driver, she shared that the incident happened on 8th March 2018 afternoon, when her father asked her to book a ride for him from Bedok to Yishun.
Unfortunately, the man went into cardiac arrest and collapsed within seconds after boarding the car. Thankfully, the shrewd driver grabbed her dad’s phone and called her to inform her about his situation. He then insisted on driving her father to Changi General Hospital out of his own goodwill, and not waste precious time by calling an ambulance instead.
Even though her father accidentally puked in the car while he was unconscious, the driver declined to receive a small token that her uncle offered him in return for his troubles, claiming that he did it “for God’s sake”.
“There are not many people who are like that anymore nowadays, so my dad was especially touched by what he did”, she added.
Her father eventually recovered, but became sick again and died two weeks later. He had hoped to contact the compassionate driver before his passing, but the Grab app does not permit direct contact between drivers and passengers. His daughter then decided to fulfill her late father’s wish by sharing the incident on Facebook.
Her viral post was later rewarded when the GrabCar driver’s daughter contacted her and she conveyed the gratitude message to her selfless father.
In the aftermath of it all, she felt deeply that “it made me think, that there are still kind people around. It’s not always easy to meet one, and I’d like to think that he was an angel sent by God to help my dad in his time of need.”
