We’ve covered some wholesome Grab rider stories before like that time a Malaysian teacher gave a very generous RM40 tip to a rider who was willing to brave the storm to deliver his meal. We also saw how this man was on cloud nine when he finally became a Grab rider after 3 years of waiting.
While we live for these heartwarming stories, it’s not everyday where we get to hear food delivery riders saving people’s lives when they’re in danger. Last time something like that went viral was when this rider helped rescue a Hilux driver who passed out while driving due to starvation. Now we have another hero in town and this time, he helped to take down some actual criminals. Watch:
A traffic CCTV footage was uploaded on @MALAYSIAVIRALL’s Twitter page on Sunday (21st August) and it certainly grabbed everyone’s attention. The video showed 2 men on a motorcycle following a woman in a yellow baju kelawar in an attempt to snatch her handbag. When all 3 of them appeared on screen again, we saw the woman chasing one of the men down while the other on the motorcycle came back for his partner so they could escape.
We then see a car pass by and stopped at the side of the road after noticing the altercation and a Grab rider appeared from behind moments later and rammed his motorcycle to stop the two snatch thieves from robbing the victim. The brave rider immediately got off his fallen bike to try and slow the thieves down and that’s when more people arrived to put an end to the attempted robbery.
The two thieves then surrendered when they were outnumbered by more men coming from different sides of the road to help the victim. Thankfully, the guilty individuals were handed over to the police shortly after. Netizens praised the rider for willing to ram his bike into the thieves’ to stop them. Even Grab’s official Twitter page praised the rider and asked for his details to properly reward him.
The Grab rider wasn’t the only one receiving praises. Every individual who arrived at the scene also received recognitions for rendering their assistance to save the victim. Netizens also applauded the woman in the yellow baju kelawar for not being afraid to put up a good fight with the thieves before all the backup arrived.
So far, there has been no further details on who our heroes are but we’re glad they came to the rescue and hope that the good Samaritans, especially the Grab rider will be rewarded for their heroic deeds.
