Nowadays, it is quite rare to see people crossing their limits for helping others, especially the strangers, but an autowala from Mumbai has been getting praised by people from all the corners for the manner in which he helped a pregnant woman in reaching the hospital.
The husband of the woman took the autorickshaw from Virar railway station, Mumbai, and he was going to pick up his wife who was experiencing labour pain. However just then, he got to know that the local train in which his wife was travelling was cancelled due to water-logging which was caused by heavy rainfall in the city.
It was then that the husband took the decision of taking the auto inside the station to pick up his wife; the auto driver also agreed with him and acted promptly. He drove the auto on the platform, picked up the woman and took her to the hospital.
Here is the video of the auto while it was running on the platform:

The auto driver was stopped by the police but when they realised that he was helping the pregnant woman, they let him go but he was arrested later by the RPF; however, the court released him after giving a warning.
Twitter was all praises for the auto driver and some were in fact very angry after hearing that he was arrested as he deserves a prize after what he did for the pregnant woman.
Here are some of the selected reactions:

He should be awarded for this instead we are giving warning
Those who are good would do everything to secure humanity and government should encourage people to come forward and help in situation where it is urgent
