“Not Only has My Son Helped Save a Life, But has Also Set a Good Example for Others. I am Proud of Him”

On 10 July 2012 in Malad, a suburb of Mumbai, India, a speeding motorcyclist hit a 12-year-old boy who was on his bicycle going to school. The motorcyclist did not stop although the boy was injured. Meet Shah, age 22, was on his way to college when he witnessed the hit-and-run accident. Mr. Shah took the unconscious boy to get medical help. He said, “I took the boy to a clinic in an auto and admitted him for treatment as he was still unconscious. I was in a hurry, as I needed to get to my college for some project work, but was also concerned about his health. I handed my gold chain worth Rs. 60,000 [over $1,000 US] to the doctor and also my mobile no. I got my chain back in the afternoon, and the victim’s family thanked me profusely.” The injured boy’s father said, “We are very grateful to him as he took Kashyap to the clinic for treatment at the right time. He also gave his gold chain to the doctor, which no one else would have done. My son currently has pain in his right leg and hand.” Ronak Savla, a witness, said, “The biker escaped to avoid police action. The victim was injured, and that youth took him to a doctor for medical care.” Bipin Shah, Meet’s father, said that “not only has my son helped save a life, but has also set a good example for others. I am proud of him.” Meet Shah is a first-year mass media student at Nagindas Khandwala College in Malad.
