2. Amazon delivery agent saves the day
When a 12-year-old school girl was playing outside the gate of a Municipal School in Maharashtra, a metal portion of the gate pierced the girl’s cheek.
An Amazon delivery executive’s quick thinking saved her from further discomfort. Ravi Bhandari held onto the gate for a good 30 minutes until the doctor arrived.
3. A heroic rescue
Retired Colonel Man Mohan Malik was being driven to the hospital by his son in December in Mumbai when they got stuck in heavy traffic.
His son pleaded with many two-wheelers to give them a lift to the hospital. Though they refused, Mrunal Kirdat, a Swiggy food delivery executive obliged. The Colonel went on to call him a ‘saviour’.
4. Kindness knows no bounds
Mumbai-based Akshita Changan was with her brother when her bike ran out of gas at 12.15 am. They spotted a Swiggy food delivery agent nearby and told him about the problem.
What he did next baffled them. Emptying his own bottle of water, he took some petrol from his tank and gave it to them.
5. Humanity at its best
