Careem recently lost one of its captains in a road accident. The company decided to pay tribute to Muhammad Yaseen, the team paid their respects to Mr. Yaseen on social media as well on its international website.
On February 25th, 2017, Muhammad Yaseen passed away in a car accident while he was on his duty, but was driving alone at the time. He was going towards Jinnah International Airport in Karachi to pick up a passenger when this sudden incident took place.
While bumping into a sharp turn, his car curved out of control and hit a tree. People passing by immediately came to help him, but were unfortunately unable to remove him from inside the car where he was struck. The people passing by did not have access to the required equipment or tools to release him.
Police, Rangers and ambulance were quick to reach the scene but were unable to pull him out of the car, Mr. Yaseen passed away given the lack of timely help.
The company believes, that he was a hard working man who contributed a lot in Careem’s network to grow.
According to the company’s message, “Yaseen had an entrepreneurial mindset and before joining Careem’s network, he was a small business owner. He planned to buy more cars and become a vendor. However, unbeknowest to anyone, those dreams were short lived.”
Yaseen was about to get engaged, he left his brothers and family behind.
“Yaseen’s passing is a huge loss for his family and everyone at Careem and we pray that Allah bestows upon him the highest honors and gives his family the strength to bare this enormous loss.”
According to Careem, “Yaseen was proud of his work and also helped recruit several others from his neighborhood. In his memory, the company plans to open a recruitment centre named after him in the same neighborhood.”
Careem will also be facilitating a car loan for Yaseen’s family so that their life is not affected.
A humble request to the government to kindly provide the police and rescuers with latest tools which can aid those who face such kind of incidents. If the police and ambulance had those tools, Mr. Yaseen could have been saved.
