2 Things To Learn As Woman Saves The Life Of A Girl Who Was Knocked By A Vehicle At Night In Benin

A woman identified as Mrs Glory Ogechi Chinedu has displayed an act of kindness after she took it upon herself to save the life of a young girl who was knocked by a 'Hit and Run' driver around Ikpoba Hill axis by Jemila Junction in Benin City. According to the lady, the young girl was seen with a bag that had foodstuffs inside and while she was trying to cross the road, she was hit by a vehicle. Mrs Glory Ogechi said it was a man that drew her attention to the girl who was lying on the ground still breathing.


According to reports, Mrs Glory Ogechi was discouraged by others who were at the scene where the accident happened, but despite this discouragement, she still showed interest in saving her life.

According to Mrs Ogechi, the unidentified lady was still breathing, though unconscious after the incident. With the assistance of her husband, they took her to the hospital at night without knowing any information about her as she was not with any mobile phone which could have been used to reach a family member.

The unidentified lady is gradually responding to treatment after sustaining injuries on her head and other part of her body.

There are two things I think we should learn from what this woman did and they are;

1. Show An Act Of Kindness To Everyone

It takes a kindhearted person to do what she did. A lot of people might have seen her in that state and passed without rendering any help because according to the doctor, she was brought to the hospital two hours after the incident.

2. Place A High Value On The Lives Of Everyone Around You

This lady placed a high value on the life of the young girl who was knocked by a vehicle, that was why she took it upon herself to rush her to the hospital in order to save her life.
