A baby in Malaysia was born inside a taxi from ride hailing service GrabTaxi which now entitles him to unlimited free cab rides for the rest of his life. While being born outside a hospital is quite risky in itself, one can’t argue the perks that come in being born in unconventional places.
This is the unusual occurrence that happened when Grab driver Nesamani Raju picked up a pregnant passenger who was heading to Sentul Medical Centre. What the 45-year-old driver didn’t expect is that the pregnant passenger would end up delivering her baby before they could even reach the hospital on time.
The pregnant passenger was supposed to have her check-up at the hospital since her baby was already due for delivery the following week. The pregnant woman was accompanied by her husband and a friend who were hoping to reach the hospital soon until heavy traffic delayed their travel time.
At that point, the pregnant passenger suddenly started screaming as an unexpected delivery was about to happen. According to the StraitsTimes, the baby was born just as the Grab driver was able to reach the entrance of the hospital.
Despite falling short in reaching the destination on time, the mother should now feel relieved. After all, not only was the delivery successful, her baby will also be getting some awesome perks courtesy of the popular ride-hailing service.
Grab took to Facebook to express their gratitude to their driver, Raju, for remaining calm in addressing the situation and for being able to take the baby safely to the hospital. The ride-hailing platform also took the opportunity to celebrate the birth of the baby stating that they’re “overjoyed” that this occurred in a Grab ride.
“To celebrate this joyous event, we are giving the baby a LIFETIME of FREE Grab rides,” the ride-hailing company added. With that said, it looks like this baby won’t be having any transportation problems in the future.
