This Delhi auto-driver has immensely improved the goodwill of his professionThe taxi-drivers and auto-drivers are generally terrible. We think they always fleece money from their passengers. The auto-drivers of Delhi are infamous in this regard. People in Delhi don't like and don't trust auto-drivers of the city.
But, on 22nd December, 2018, Pawan Shah, an auto-driver in Delhi, proved this general assessment wrong. At around 10.45 a.m., he was returning to his residence after dropping a passenger at his destination. He suddenly noticed a woman carrying a baby was standing at the edge of a bridge over Meethapur canal. Pawan suspected something unusual and immediately stopped his auto. But within seconds, the woman jumped into the canal with the baby. She was trying to commit suicide.
Pawan didn't waste time. He also immediately jumped into the canal to save two precious lives. He started shouting for help. Fortunately, three locals heard him and they also came to rescue the woman and the child. Somehow, these four managed to save them.
But, unfortunately, in the ice-cold water, Pawan Shah's muscles gave up and he was swept away by the strong current. He saved the woman and the baby but could not save himself.
But this ordinary auto-driver has improved the goodwill of his profession by his sacrifice.
