Three people in a remote town in Peru called Contamana were able to get life-saving medical treatment on Wednesday . . . thanks to several hundred taxi drivers. (Contamana is 400 miles northeast of Lima.)
A woman and her newborn had complications after the delivery . . . and a man was suffering from a tropical disease. Contamana doesn't have a hospital that could handle the three patients, so they had to be flown to a modern hospital that night.
But that was a problem too. The only place in Contamana where a medevac plane could fly out was an 800-foot airstrip . . . with no lights.
So 300 local motorbike taxi drivers helped out. They lined the runway with their motorcycles and lit the runway with their headlights so the plane could take off.
