According to reports, not only the couple were escorted to a safe shelter, but they also pushed the car to higher ground - all these in waist-deep rainwater. “After a few hours of being stranded on the road a rescue vehicle finally arrived and took the car away,” Wasi wrote. Then, another person came forward and dropped the couple home. “Whoever they are, if this post gets to them - so proud of you and you inspire. Delhi redeems itself sometimes!” Wasi wrote in her post’s concluding lines.
