Due to the negative experience a few people have had while trying to help someone out, most people have become discouraged to perform acts of kindness to people in need.
However, it is interesting to note that there are still some selfless people around who would act kindly without any hope of getting a reward.
A Twitter user, identified Abbas (@_MrSIMPLE_), shared the wonderful experience he had after he helped a pregnant woman and her mother get to the hospital.
According to Abbas, he saw a pregnant woman who was already in labour and her mother by the roadside around 11 pm, and he decided to help them get to the hospital because they were stranded.
However, things took an interesting turn when the pregnant woman gave birth in his car.
The surprised Abbas captured a video of the event and posted it on his Twitter page.
He also revealed in a subsequent tweet that the mother and child are safe and sound.
Several tweeps were impressed with his courageous and charitable act and they wished him well. Some even suggested that the child should be named after him.
