Very Very Brave Driver

Yesterday, while I read a very moving article in the newspaper which I wanted to share with you all.

A Bus Driver Syed Fakir who is driving the Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) Bus from Srungavarapu Kota (S. Kota) to Araku Valley had a Heart Attack while negotiating the bus through the Ghat Road.

Even while he is aware of the heart attack, he saved the lives of 32 passengers by skilfully applying brakes and banked the bus to the side of the road.

Once the bus stopped, he collapsed on the steering wheel. Worried passengers immediately called the 108 Ambulance Service and he was pronounced dead due to heart attack.

We see such act of bravery very rarely. I salute to the bus driver and feel sad for his demise. Hope APSRTC helps his immediate family.

It is no doubt a sad incident for the driver's family. I personally feel he is a blessed soul for the fact that he had chance to save so many families. His soul can rest in peace knowing he has done a good deed.

In today's world of 'ant kill ant', it is rare to find such brave and conscientious people. Kudos to such people!
