Urgency On The Road

On the 2nd may 2012, I got up early to go to work. It was a field work and where we were going was a little bit far so we were to leave at about 6.30am so as to be there on time. I had just reached at the main road when I saw a pregnant women struggling in pain. she was in labour pains and so I decided to help her. I carried her in my car to the hospital and did everything for her left. Later in the evening I checked on her at the hospital and found that she had delivered a baby boy safely. She was grateful for my help and financial support and since then we've remained to be good friends
