A taxi driver's continuous kindness to patients has been recognized by the hospital management in a special way.
According to Everyday Heroes on LinkedIn, the taxi driver is famed for assisting patients to the hospital in Spain at no cost to them.
In a Reddit video, the unsuspecting driver was stunned with a rousing standing ovation by doctors and nurses as he gained access into the hospital premises.
The ovation which was done with rounds of applause was then sealed with a cash gift in an envelope to the man.
The overwhelmed man appreciated the hospital staff for the gesture. He was said to have come around to pick up another patient when the surprise happened.
Social media users describe him as a hero
George Holovaci commented:
"We can all play our part to assist fellow man. Good on the medical staff for recognizing this gentleman’s contribution. I am sure this was unexpected and made the guy’s day. More importantly, it likely encourages him to assist more going forward.
"If we all did similarly and recognized the giving efforts of others, would we not all be better off? I am motivated to make it a point to commend someone’s efforts today!"
Lutz E. Weber wrote:
"Gosh, there are so many examples how to do thing right. My deepest respect for this gentlemen and other guys, being unknown heroes around us..."
Emily L. Bouwens said:
"I absolutely love seeing people who help others!! And also to see how they react when shown appreciation for what they do!! Especially when they think they really didn't do anything."
Denise P.O. reacted:
"What a hero - and that the heroes in scrubs take time to also recognize him - a class act all around! I love these moments - there is so much good and kindness in the world - does the heart good to get a little daily reminder of it and each of us can, in our own little way, do something quietly that shows kindness around us!"
