With all the negative news going around, it’s nice to hear about a good samaritan who will restore our faith in humanity. Nestor Custodio Jr. is one of those people. Nestor, a cab driver, is quickly gaining popularity online as the taxi driver who went to a radio station just to report a bag that was left inside his cab.
The Tambayan ni Berto Facebook page shared Nestor’s story:
[Si] Nestor Custudio Jr. [ay] driver ng Larajophil Transport. Nagpunta siya sa station namin (Manila Broadcasting Company) ng 8:30pm at may dalang malaking bag na napaka bigat na may lamang mga damit at mga importanteng dokumento. Nakapagsakay daw siya ng isang lalaki na nagngangalang John Eric Penecios sa NAIA at ibinaba sa Coastal Mall. Hindi niya din napansin na may naiwan pala yung pasahero niya, kaya pag baba nito, umalis na din siya. Hindi pa man nakakalayo, may naisakay siyang pasahero at pag baba, pilit daw na inaangkin ang bagaheng naiwan ng naunang pasahero. Dahil sa naalala niya na ito nga ay dala ng naunang pasahero, hindi niya ito ibinigay at sumadya sa aming station para magreport. Humingi ng tulong na mai-announce sa programa ni Papa Jack sa 90.7 Love Radio. Hindi niya naisipang buksan at pagintiresan ang laman ng bag at unang inisip na dalhin sa amin para maiannounce sa radyo.
(Nestor Custodio Jr. is a driver of Larajophil Transport. He went to our radio station (Manila Broadcasting Company) at 8:30pm and brought a big and heavy bag with clothes and important documents. He said that he picked up a man named John Eric Penecios at NAIA and dropped him off at Coastal Mall. John didn’t notice that the passenger left a bag, so when the passenger left, he went on his way. Shortly, he got another passenger who claimed that the bag was his. Luckily, Nestor remembered that the bag belonged to the first passenger and did not give it. He went to our station to report and announce it on Papa Jack’s program on 90.7 Love Radio. Nestor didn’t think about opening the bag and keeping the items. His first thought was to bring it to us and announce it on the radio.)
After the radio announcement, John Eric, an OFW from Tagbilaran who works in the United Arab Emirates, heard about the announcement and quickly claimed his bag.
