UNSUNG HEROES


CHRISTCHURCHWOMAN SERENADED BY TAXI DRIVER ON HER 80TH BIRTHDAY


A woman celebrating her 80th birthday in Christchurch was given a surprise delivery on her special day courtesy of a United Taxis driver. According to the Bournemouth Echo, Samantha Mann was due to surprise her mum, Margaret Fearnhead, on her landmark birthday at her home on Wednesday 7 October. However, as she was awaiting her son’s Covid-19 test result, she was unable to deliver her gifts and birthday cake to her mother, so was forced to come up with an alternative plan. Samantha said: “I called United Taxis of Christchurch and asked them for a taxi to deliver it for me at 9.30am. “The lovely taxi driver came to the door to collect the presents and cake, and I explained that I could not visit, and it was her 80th birthday.” Unbeknown to her, that particular driver, Jeff Mogg, is an ardent Elvis fan and loves to make people happy and put a smile on their faces. So when he knocked on the door and Mar- garet opened it, she was not only stunned


to have her presents and cake hand deliv- ered, but she was also serenaded by Jeff who sang happy birthday to her, from her doorstep, Elvis style. Samantha said that her mother was “over the moon” to be greeted with a surprise on the morning of her birthday.


She added “She said how the nicely the driver sang her happy birthday and really made her day. She was so pleased. “I called the taxi company to say thank you and to ask them to pass on my gratitude for making the delivery so special for my mum. They said they would call him and let him know for me.” Samantha said that she feels he deserves to be recognised for his kindness and for being such a lovely person. “I would really like to say a special thank you to him for going out of his way to make my mother happy on her special day. “It's incredibly kind of him and unexpected. What a truly lovely person.”


HERO TAXI DRIVER HELPS SAVE REDDITCH BOY’S LIFE AFTER HE CHOKES ON MINT IN HIS CAB


A quick-thinking taxi driver and a passing nurse helped save the life of a young Red- ditch boy who was choking on two mints. The Redditch Standard reports that Harry Fisher, aged five, was travelling with his mum Melissa Addison in a taxi on Monday 12 October when he tapped her on the leg to let her know that he couldn’t breathe. Melissa had given Harry two mints to mask the smell of his face covering, but didn’t realise that he had accidentally lodged the sweets in his throat. The pair were being driven to Harry’s school by Time Taxis driver Ish Mo, who immediately stopped the car after realsing Harry was in trouble. Ish said: “I pulled over by the Co-op on Evesham Road at around 8.20am, got out the car and began smacking Harry on his back. “He was starting to turn blue in the face but after doing the Heimlich manoeuvre and a couple of blows he managed to swallow the first mint.”

A passing nurse, Fiona Harrison, ran over after realising Harry was still was choking. Heavily pregnant Melissa said: “She got out of her car and started whacking Harry on his back which managed to dislodge the second sweet. “I can’t thank them both enough, it was the most scared I’ve ever been in my life as I nearly lost my son. If it wasn’t for them my son would probably not be here now and I cannot put into words how grateful I am for these two amazing people who saved my boy. “Ish and Fiona are heroes. They were abso- lutely amazing. If it wasn’t for them, I don’t know what would have happened. It could have been a hell of a lot worse. I just want to thank them. “The ambulance crew were going to bring us home. But Ish took us home. He didn’t even charge us!” Ish, who co-owns Time Taxis with his broth- er, told the Standard that his family are proud of how he handled the situation.
