A message sent by mistake to a delivery rider turned into an act of kindness and a life saver.
Diane Francheska Ombac sent an urgent text message to her sister to buy her medicine as she could feel an asthma attack coming on.
But given her agitated state, Diane mistakenly sent her text message to rider Ronald Bacani.
Just the same, Bacani responded and immediately headed to the drugstore to get what Diane needed.
Diane shared her story on Facebook."Hello kay Kuya na mabait na naabala sa katangahan ko. Sorry, hirap na hirap na talaga ko kanina. Akala ko kapatid [ko] yung na-text ko.
"Akala ko rin siya talaga kaya nung sinabi niyang malayo na siya, di na ko nag-reply.
"Bumalik si Kuya, binilhan niya ko tapos hindi siningil yung shipping."
Ombac told Inquirer.net: "Right after makaalis ni Kuya, dun na po ako inatake ng asthma kasi medyo maalikabok yung mirror. Ang akala ko po kapatid ko yung na-text ko."
The delivery rider had already bought the meds when Diane realized the mix-up.
She then thanked Bacani for coming to her aid. Diane also revealed that people extended help to the courier via GCash upon reading her post.
Diane's latest post read: "On behalf of Kuya Ronald, thanks to everyone who helped. Let us all pay it forward. Thank you, Kuya Ronald, for showing us that there's still hope after all. Thank you Lord for people like Kuya."
