A bus driver who offers his seat to a mother who is carrying her baby makes a strong point to his own passengers about being considerate of others.
A poor woman who is carrying an infant stood inside a bus in Concepción – Penco route in Chile.
None of the passengers – including some male – wanted to give in. However, the driver stood by what he know is right and did something amazing.
As reported by LiveLeak:
The driver stopped the bus, stood up and offered his seat to a woman who is holding her baby in one arm while she is balancing herself by holding on to a fixture with the other arm. Suddenly, some people realize that without a driver, the bus is going nowhere.
At the insistence of the driver, a woman finally stands to offer her seat and the lady with the baby is able to make to way to a seat for a safer journey, while other passengers still ignore the situation or refuse to offer a seat.
It is unfortunate that this had to happen after the driver made a point. This occurred in Concepción route – Penco (Chile).
It was pretty obvious that the bus couldn’t go anywhere if the driver was not in his seat, and soon the other passengers began to understand the point he was trying to make.
He lectured the passengers on their lack of concern for the obviously struggling mother, and eventually one woman stood up and offered up her seat.
Thankfully there are still some people who follow these customs of human kindness, and the actions of one such bus driver in Chile will hopefully encourage others to do the same.
Hopefully the driver’s actions pricked the consciouses of the other passengers. It’s nice to see that chivalry is not completely dead after all!
