There is a new hero in town. He doesn’t hail from Wakanda or a wear tight body suit. He is someone we see daily. A matatu driver identified only as George.
George saved the life of a mother and his newborn and even checked up on them to ensure they are fairing okay. He did this without a thought on missing out on making money during rush hour.
A Facebook post by Ndungu Nyoro highlighting George’s act of kindness has gone viral.
Read the post below.
“My hero of the day is George. George is a bus driver dedicated to his work in matatu industry along Thika road. Earlier today one of his passengers went into labor in the bus. The conductor and other passengers, ladies included, took off.
PERHAPS WITH MINIMAL OPTIONS, GEORGE GATHERED STRENGTH, GUIDED THE HELPLESS MOTHER IN DELIVERY AND AS SOON AS THE BABY’S HEAD POPPED OUT HE RUSHED MOTHER AND BABY TO NEEMA HOSPITAL ALONG THIKA ROAD. THE TWO ARE SAFE AND EXCITED TO BE TOGETHER.
George later resumed his duties happy that he saved two lives.
Please help me congratulate this Good Samaritan. Isn’t he an angel?”
One Nairobian agreed, Annita Ngugi said, “Congrats George i know him he has a good heart even talking to people as well. Kudos.”
Nairobians were so impressed, here are some of their touching messages congratulating George.
Wacuka K. Githu: From his testimony when the head popped he helped the lady push the baby baby was delivered, he told the lady to hold the baby closed the door and rushed her and baby boy to neema hospital, he even called the hubby who was in Narok and later followed up to ensure baby n mum are okay, if this guy is not a hero then I don’t know the meaning of the word, God bless you George
