Taxi Drivers Disabled Their Meters To Evacuate People In Wake Of Manchester Bombing

The recent suicide bombing at the Manchester Arena during an Ariana Grande performance has left 22 people dead and over 59 injured; some of the victims were as young as 8-years-old.

People were left shaken by the attack, including Grande herself, who was reported to have been crying and feeling partially responsible for those who were injured and killed in the arena.

But there are some silver linings in the wake of such a disgusting and cowardly attack. Like these two friends who were reunited in the aftermath of the bombing, thanks to Twitter.

And these cab drivers who, after the attack, turned off their meters to transport people to safety.

Moments after the attack, cabbie AJ Singh put up a 'free taxi' sign on his vehicle getting people the free transportation they desperately needed after such a traumatizing event.

He said in an interview with Channel 4 news

"I’ve had people who needed to find loved ones, I dropped them to the hospital, they’ve not had any money, they’ve been stranded, there’s no transport. We should, you know, come out and show whoever has done this that it doesn’t matter because we’re glue and we stick together when it counts." 

The gesture made by AJ and other cabbies was noticed and appreciated by many.

There were also reports of hotels offering free rooms for victims as well.

The kindness of Manchester's community in the face of such adversity is admirable.

It is unclear as of now whether the suicide bomber was acting alone or working as part of an organization. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack, but an investigation is still underway.
