The driver, Abubakr Ibrahim, 54, of Baa atoll Eydhafushi island, passed away after he was sent to the Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) following the heart attack.

According to an official of Kulee Dhuveli taxi centre where the driver was employed, Abubakr suffered cardiac arrest while driving along Lonuziyaarai Magu road. He had pulled over and stepped out of the car upon feeling pain in his chest.
