Soon after R. Kevin, the USM graduate who hitched a ride with a motorcyclist and made it to his graduation, social media was abuzz again.
This time, netizens want to know the identity of the mysterious motorcyclist who helped Kevin.
Netizens want to know who this Good Samaritan is.
USM, via its Facebook page, had posted how Kevin, 28, was in danger of missing out on his convocation ceremony after his family vehicle became stuck on the Penang Bridge following a massive jam.
However, a passing motorcyclist offered Kevin a ride, and he made it in time for the event.
Netizens are now asking if anybody on the bridge could determine the identity of the kind-hearted biker.
“Please make this go viral. We should reward people for their good deeds,”.
“Hats off to the motorcyclist who helped you achieve your goal. God bless his good deed. He is an angel in disguise,” they said.
Others congratulated both Kevin and the motorcyclist.
“Congratulations to both of you. One for graduating and the other for being the hero of the day. And of course, special thanks to USM for being concerned and for leading by example,”.
A photo of Kevin, smartly-dressed in a suit and clutching his graduation robe while sticking out his thumb to hitch a ride, went viral on social media recently.
Kevin, who made it in time for the ceremony, later said that both his parents Rayappan, 62 and Mary, 48 who continued driving in a bad traffic jam along the bridge, also managed to arrive at the university in time to see him receive his scroll.
Kevin received a Master of Business Administration.
