At Qambrani Road in Quetta, the driver, Muhammad Faisal, was spotted driving the burning truck away from the city. Faisal stopped the vehicle and stepped out as soon as he found an empty space on the road away from buildings and people.
Faisal recalled his heroic moment by saying that the truck felt like it was about to explode at any minute. While he was aware of the danger to his own life, he stated that he could not simply stand by. “My primary concern was to save other lives,” he said.
Residents on Qambrani Road observed the entire incident and praised the driver for his incredible bravery while his own safety was in jeopardy. “The provincial government should award this heroic driver a special medal,” Afaq Ahmed, a resident along Qambrani Road, suggested.
