A delivery rider was able to render assistance to a woman who had a sudden bout of asthma attack, all because of a wrongly sent message.
The woman, Diane Francheska Ombac, recently shared on social media that she mistakenly sent a message to delivery rider Ronald Bacani, thinking all the while that she was texting her older brother.
“Kuya di ako maka hinga. Bilhan mo ko ventolin Rotacap sa Watsons. Para sa hika. Capsules yun. Please. Di talaga ko maka hinga,” Ombac’s text read.
Bacani, who just delivered a package to Ombac, though already far away, did not hesitate to buy the medicines and rush back to his customer who is already having difficulty breathing.
The simple act of Bacani of buying medicines and giving it to Ombac allowed her to avoid a more serious medical emergency.
In her Facebook post, Ombac narrated what happened. “Right after makaalis ni kuya, dun na po ako inatake ng asthma kasi medyo maalikabok yung mirror. Ang akala ko po kapatid ko yung na-text ko,” she said.
“…nung sinabi niyang malayo na siya, di na ko nag-reply. Bumalik si kuya binilhan niya ko tapos hindi siningil yung shipping,” Ombac said.
Later on, she took to Facebook to express her gratitude to delivery rider Bacani.
“Hello kay Kuya na mabait na naabala sa katangahan ko sorry hirap na hirap na talaga ko kanina. Akala ko kapatid 'yung na text ko,” Ombac wrote in her post.

Since the pandemic started, the number of delivery riders in the Philippines has grown to huge proportions. This is because most households would rather order online and have them delivered to their doorsteps rather than venture out and risk getting a COVID infection. While the riders have rendered tremendous service to the populace, there are times when some of them fall victim to cruel pranks and fake bookings. This resulted in the delivery riders either offering for sale the food they’re supposed to deliver, or pay for it themselves.
Helpful delivery riders are not confined to the Philippines. In Vietnam, a delivery rider saved a child from certain death. According to reports, the rider saw a child about to fall down from a high-rise apartment. In what seemed to be a life and death situation, the delivery rider managed to save the child after she fell. The said incident immediately made the locals dub him as a 'superhero' for his bravery and courageous act.
Doing good are nothing new for delivery riders. In some instances, however, the good they’re doing has often gone unappreciated. Such was the case of a delivery rider who was carrying a totally enormous package on his motorcycle. In a video that has now gone viral, the rider seems to be carrying several stacked boxes, which would render him "invisible" from behind. This means that vehicles following him would not be able to see his body because the package was way bigger than him. The photo of the delivery rider has been shared several times on social media and has also elicited a lot of comments.
