You never know when you’ll be put in a situation where you can save someone’s life. When you find yourself in that situation, you’ll hope to have the courage of one Uber driver who had to step up for a passenger. The man shared the story of his accidentally heroic actions online. He explained that while driving for Uber, he got a message from a rider whose trip he had just accepted. She asked the driver to pretend to be her boyfriend when he picked her up.
Brandon, the Uber driver, elaborated on the story when he spoke to Bored Panda about the incident. He explained that a woman was stuck in a situation with a man who was unwilling to take no for an answer. She tried to get away from him by going to her car, but he followed her there. At that point, she told the man that she lost her keys and texted her “boyfriend” to pick her up. The quick-thinking could have very well saved the woman’s life.
