Kudos: Uber Driver Helps Woman Deliver A Baby In His Cab En Route To The Hospital
People like these don’t just make their employers proud, but the world proud!
A woman in New Delhi, India gave birth in an Uber cab on the way to the hospital!
Khan, who works for the taxi service Uber, happened to be cruising past Select City Walk mall, Saket, when he received a request for a cab to pick up a client from Deoli Village in Sainik Farms at approximately 8 pm. He initially thought of declining, but, upon hearing that the client had to be dropped to a hospital, decided to make the trip. En route to the hospital, somewhere near Ansal Plaza at a traffic signal, Babli suddenly cried that the baby was coming. A bemused Khan initially didn’t know what to do, but quickly reached out for towels, and whatever clothing he had stored in the back of his car to help the birth, and then stood guard. Miraculously, before the traffic signal could change, the baby was born. “It just goes to show how long the traffic signals are at Delhi,” joked Khan. Instead of wasting time, the driver quickly escorted mother, and child to the hospital. Once there, he didn’t consider his duty complete. He got a stretcher, helped the mother onto it, and then wheeled her inside the hospital. “The doctors thought I was her husband, and were shocked to hear I was the driver,” he said. They also complimented his quick action: “the mother and her baby could have been at risk, but all of that was eliminated because we were fast.” The young driver, who is married with a child, was as elated as the family to be a part of the entire experience, and wanted nothing for his help. “I am very happy. There’s nothing better than this. After all, money is not everything in the world,” he said.
Babli officially named her newborn son Uber, telling reporters:
“I named him after Uber because the baby was born in Uber cab.”
We loved it!
