Three staff members of a toll gate in Lam Dong Province of Vietnam’s Central Highlands region have been praised for saving a truck driver who was suffering a stroke while at the station last month.

The management of the Lien Dam toll station on National Highway 20 in Lam Dong’s Di Linh District gave the staff members, namely Tran Van Cong, Dang Le Huyen, and Tran Thi Thu Huyen, a reward for their heroism.

A representative of the toll station on Wednesday recounted that when the truck numbered 51C-830.08 stopped off at 3:00 am on June 12 to pay the toll, the driver suddenly had a stroke, with his arm twitching and his body collapsing. 

His assistant driver was asleep at the time.

Cong, Le Huyen, and Thu Huyen -- who were on duty at the the toll station at that time -- quickly took the driver into the facility and gave him first aid.

The driver regained his consciousness, articulateness, and mobility about ten minutes later. 

He then continued to rest at the station until about 5:00 am, when his assistant driver took him to Di Linh District Hospital for a check-up.

The patient was determined to have had a stroke with mild symptoms which required a specialist examination to find the cause.

Among the three staff members who came to the driver's aid, Cong had once been a driver and was trained in first aid, allowing him to handle the aforementioned incident quickly.
