KUALA LUMPUR: Grab is giving the baby boy born inside one its vehicles free rides for life.
In a post on Facebook on Saturday, the ride-hailing company said that it was proud of driver Grace Nesamani Raju.
"IT'S A BOY! We’re overjoyed to hear that a baby was delivered in a Grab ride yesterday while on the way to the hospital.
"We couldn't have been more proud of our driver-partner Grace who remained calm and brought both parents and baby safely to the hospital.
"To celebrate this joyous event, we are giving the baby a LIFETIME of FREE Grab rides," the company said in its post.
Grace, 45, had picked up a pregnant passenger heading from Bukit Bintang to Sentul Medical Centre on Thursday evening.
The woman was accompanied by her husband and a woman friend for a check-up at the hospital as the baby's expected due date was only next week.
They were caught in heavy traffic when the pregnant passenger suddenly started screaming.
The baby, however, was born as soon as Grace stopped the car at the entrance.
