See someone around you feeling sick? PLEASE HELP

If you ever see someone fainting or feeling sick or someone who just met with an accident, in your train or on the road or just anywhere, for God sake don't simply think, "He'll be fine" and walk away. I urge you to raise an alarm or do whatever you can do to help without wasting a single second. Last night, perhaps a woman could have been saved if people around her had come to her help before it was too late.

We talk about the spirit of Mumbai all the time... when some people saw a woman in a train last night and she was just not well, I hear they simply went and sat somewhere away from her. I heard she got in the train at Elphinstone Road and it was only at Andheri that some nice people, as soon as they came to know about it, pressed the panic button and helped her out. And I must tell you, thanks to the men who got in the ladies compartment when it became general compartment at night (and of course also a few nice ladies) at least some effort was made. What happened to the others who were watching her since Elphinstone Road? For those who ignored her... she is no longer with us, may be she could have been saved. Let's be nice people, we are humans with a heart and soul, right?

This is so very true, a few months back, a similar thing happened, which coming home me and my dad noticed that a group of people were standing along the side of the road,we stopped to inquire, we noticed that a man was lying on the road his scooter was lying a little away. The worst part was that there were around 20 people standing in a circle but no one bothered to move and help him, so dad and me rushed and told others to help, they said to my dad "You first" we supported him. Later we stopped a rikshaw but seeing and accident no rikshaw was ready to stop.Fortunately, since my father is a police officer, he managed to stop one and forced the rikshaw person to take this injured person to the hospital. We followed him, and ensured that he was admitted and treatment was started. from his indentity card we called up his company people and later we left.
But the worst part here was that people were standing and watching like dumb. but no one bothered to come forward.

Ya, there are many silent ovbservers around. If there could be more good souls like you and your father, the world would become a better place to live.

Thanks for going through my blog.
