New York Uber driver turns away pregnant lady

A New York Uber driver refused to rush a pregnant woman to hospital but charged her anyway.

According to website Fortune, the driver told David Lee and his partner he wouldn't take them to hospital because she was being sick on the street.

The mother said: "I don't blame Uber for one driver's poor actions, since bad apples can appear in any organisation, but I do think that when a company has a culture of bullying their way past laws and regulations, as Uber seems to do, they begin to think they can act with impunity in anything."

The couple did their best to persuade the driver and even offered to pay for the bill if he had to clear up any mess made in the taxi.

However, he turned them away but still charged them $13.
