The 27-year-old has been identified as Pakistani national, who told Khaleej Times that he was waiting at a traffic signal when a taxi nearly escaped an accident after it went over the block.
“To be honest, I didn’t think I was doing anything special,” he said. “I was just making sure no one would get hurt. If God forbid, one of our riders hit it, it could even cause death. That is why I acted quickly.”
His employer had rewarded him with an air ticket to visit his family and meet his son, to whom he missed a lot.
