A driver became an instant celebrity after helping a woman and her grandchild out during their time of need.
According to reports on Monday, 25 November, a lady and her grandson left Gatundu Level Five Hospital, Kenya after a successful therapy session.
According to Hon Mario Nderi, a Facebook user, the two boarded a taxi but tragedy struck when the little boy started convulsing while in the vehicle.
The grandma started panicking, forcing the driver and passengers to act fast.
“This afternoon, a woman was coming from Gatundu Level Five Hospital where she had taken her grandson for therapy and had boarded this young man's matatu. On reaching Theta Club along Gatundu to Thika Road, the baby started convulsing and the granny panicked,” Nderi explained.
Passengers pleaded with the driver to rush the little one to Neema Hospital.
Surprisingly, the matatu crew obliged and quickly zoomed off to the healthcare facility.
The driver decided to be even kinder and carried the little boy to an examination room inside the hospital and stayed for a while as they waited for a doctor to arrive.
“What shocked many is that one of the passengers asked the driver to rush to Neema Hospital in Kahawa Sukari-Engen and he agreed. This young man and his tout did not hesitate or question and drove off to the hospital,” Nderi added.
Kenyans piled praises on the strangers who chose life over money and helped save the innocent child.
Doctors at Neema thanked the crew for acting quickly as their actions ensured the little boy lived to see another day.

The twin brothers have played very key roles in strengthening the faith in Ghana and beyond.
The two are humble servants of God who are loved by many of their colleagues, pastors and the Christian community in general for their simplicity, peace-loving nature and openness to all persons.
The two are also credited with Ministry outreach programs to the rural world with free medical help, free drugs, food, clothing, Bibles and book distribution among many other things.
