Brutally beaten Uber driver is ‘wonderful human being:’ ex-wife

The brutally beaten Uber driver is a “wonderful human being” who “would do anything for anybody, even a stranger on the street,” his ex-wife says.

The 54-year-old former chauffeur for celebs, Mohamed Al-Gahaffi, has been clinging to life in a Manhattan hospital since a vicious attack by five rowdy riders during an Uber ride in Woodside last month.

“He is the most wonderful man you’ll ever meet,” Mary Rosado told The Post Sunday. “They say he is going to have a long recovery, but we don’t know how long.”

But Rosado remained optimistic about his condition.

“He’s definitely making some improvements,” his former wife of 10 years said. “When you talk to him, he will turn his head, he will move his arms, he opens his eyes sometimes. They say he hears us.”

Rosado says she talks each day to his family in Yemen as the Uber driver lies in a coma and they want answers — and attackers to be brought to justice.

“I speak to his family in Yemen every day and they keep asking me why?” Rosado said. “I tell them we have to let the police do their investigation.”

“I think drivers should be protected like bus drivers and MTA conductors,” she said. “I think the TLC should have the same protection. And they should have cameras installed in the cars.”
