A Spanish taxi driver was providing free rides to patients to and from a Madrid hospital, but when he was called to the hospital to pick up a patient he received a pleasant surprise: a standing ovation from the hospital staff.
The Spanish Taxi Union shared a short clip on their official Twitter handle which showed the unidentified driver being greeted with applause by the staff at the Centro de Salud Ramón y Cajal hospital in Alcorcón, Madrid.
Subsequently, a health worker hands him an envelope with money and a gesture of thanks from the hospital.
