Talabat driver saves child special needs autism busy road

Mariam Alrashdi, the founder of Ontario Center Special Needs in Qatar, has shared on Instagram the story of a heroic Talabat driver that saved a child with autism on 14 October 2022.

The child, whose name is Taha, is a student at Ontario Center for Special Needs. He was found wandering the busy road of Salwa Road alone on Friday night visibly distressed with hands over his ears. Cornelius, a Kenyan Talabat driver, approached Taha to help. Taha, who has been trained at Ontario Center for Special Needs on how to handle situations like this, informed Cornelius that he had autism and gave him his father's phone number. Cornelius then contacted the child's father to pick him up.

Cornelius was recognized by Ontario Center for Special Needs for his heroic and kind act that saved Taha from danger. He was given a certificate of appreciation from the center for this noble act of humanity.
