“Luckily, we got to the hospital in time even though the delivery had to take place in my taxi. It was a very special moment for me to witness a miracle in times like these – like a promise of a new life“, said Mr Tan.

As it was a street hail trip and everything happened so quickly, Cabby Tan could not get the couple’s contact before they were quickly escorted into the hospital. But, he hopes to be able to find out how they and their newborn are doing.

“It will really be nice to know they are well and also if the birth certificate actually says ‘born in taxi“, the taxi driver added.
