A video of a young man who had to trek a long distance carrying his sick wife to hospital in a rural area has left many social media users feeling awed and grateful for their own blessings.
Briefly.co.za learnt that according to a lady identified as Mumy B Oyigbo who shared the videos on Facebook, she had sighted the couple trekking on the road and noticed the sick wife was on the verge of dying.
Oyigbo stated the outcome would have been fatal if she had not come along to help them get to the hospital.
Due to the lockdown in the state, vehicles have become scarce making movement difficult.
The good Samaritan from Nigeria stated the lockdown would lead to the death of a lot of people as sickness and hunger continue to claim lives.
"Watch how this Coronavirus lockdown might be leading to death in Rivers State. The girl you see in the video was almost dying her husband had to carry her on his back for long because there is no vehicle on the road," she wrote.
The kind woman added that the lady almost fainted during the drive and could not record the video since she had to drive fast to the hospital.
"She almost fainted on the road, I could not record that part because I am the only one driving. Had to help them to my hospital. Last time, I saw a more severe case where I still drove them to my hospital free of charge where we gave the girl emergency oxygen she was a second away from death," she added.
