A poignant photo of a Foodpanda delivery rider on his motorbike has been making its round on social media recently.

While this may, at first glance, look like any other photos, a closer look revealed something else altogether: the delivery rider has had the words EMERGENCY CONTACT, followed by the phone number of his mother and his wife written in marker pen on his delivery bag.
