Man rescues his father by chance after car accident

Taipei, Sept. 25 (CNA) The conventional wisdom that acts of kindness can pay off in unimaginable ways was brought home to a man who stopped his car on a freeway to help a road accident victim and discovered it was his own father. The car accident occurred Thursday morning on Taiwan's No. 1 Freeway near the Nantun Interchange in Taichung City when the driver lost control and the car hit the guardrail and overturned, police said. The driver crawled out of the car, luckily with only minor injuries to his head and hands, police said. Another man who was driving past on his way to work stopped to help and when he got to the overturned car, he realized that the injured driver was his father, police said. The younger man, surnamed Chen, said that he wanted to see if you could offer some help but was shocked to find his own father, who left home just minutes before he did, at the crash site. The father was taken to hospital in an ambulance. (By Chao Li-yan and Y.F. Low)
