What the drat did you see that ass hole who got out of his car across the street and walked right past him without even looking, its like the episode of Seinfeld, the season finale when they get sent to jail for just watching the guy get his car stolen, but this is much worse the dudes life was at stake

What COULD they have done?? You F**king kidding me? Did you you see ANYONE even approach him to see if he was even breathing for starters?
How do YOU or ANYONE else know he is paralyzed much less BREATHING IF NO ONE EVEN GOT DOWN CLOSE ENOUGH TO CHECK!
Contray to popular myth, there are laws in place that protect GOOD SAMARITANS should a person be injured and unresponsive!!! What the hell you think PARAMEDICS, FIREFIGHTERS AND POLICE DO...HELP ONLY THOSE WHO CAN SPEAK AND BREATHE?
This video is a sick; yet not-so-surprising commentary on our society today.Beyond sad!!

All the cheering and waving people in the background while this guy is talking about an old man getting hit by cars with no one to help is priceless...

okay. well what COULD we have done?
he's paralyzed, so it would be dangerous to move him if you're not a paramedic.
people called 911.
i guess they could've tried to stop traffic

Honestly, I'm 16, I'm totally not qualified to do anything (or even am familiar with /EXACTLY/ the right thing to do in this situation).
I'd be too afraid of hurting him further to touch him, I think.

I'd definitely try to stop traffic, call 911, and try to talk to him or something, but I don't think I'd know whether or not to try and move him or anything.

... And even if I did move him, I can't imagine I could really make the situation any better in having done so. I dunno.

God has nothing to do with it. I'm 100% agnostic so I'm not defending "my religion" or anything, but blaming the behavior of human beings on god is just a sad cop-out.

All the people preaching that you'd be stupid to try to help are making excuses, too. TALK TO THE GUY at the very least. Imagine if you were lying in the street bleeding to death and people just stared at you like you were some sideshow freak. Safe to say you'd lose any faith in humanity you may have had.

Hiding behind Bystander Apathy is the same damn thing as doing it. "Everyone else does it so it's okay if I do; nobody's gonna blame ME." Maybe some of us are just crazy for thinking somebody's life is more important than who's gonna get blamed or praised.

UNSUB.... YES the Good Samaritan laws would cover him, BUT ONLY if he/she has a the qualified training for what ever it was need to be done.

If he didn't have the training, then he could be sued.

If you guys want to do something, take a CPR class, and/or first aid. Then Readup on the Good Smaritan laws of your state, some would state that if you didn't call 911 then you could be sued for doing nothing

I heard about that in the news. Happened just a few towns away from mine.

Yeah, CT has 3 of the top 10 richest towns in America, but it also has 3 of the top 10 poorest towns in America.

squallce: "I'd be afraid of being sued for helping."

You can't be sued for helping an accident victim because there's the Good Samaritan law (it was explained in some earlier posts).

that is the most disgusting thing i'v e ever seen. shame on people, shame on what we've become- and when all those who didn't help die their own miserable deaths, they don't deserve any sympathy. wow what miserable, pathetic jerks who wouldn't even pull an old man bleeding out of every orifice off the road- who do they think he is? roadkill? it's another human being for christ's sake

I'd be afraid of being sued for helping. Not worth the risk... if you hurt him and he died or w/e his family can take everything you own and possibly have you put in jail for a long time. Forget that! I don't blame anyone for not helping with the way people sue everyone now-a-days.

Wow. This really makes me sad...

And for those of you who said he was better off not being helped, put yourself in that situation. Yeah, moving him might have made it worse, but someone could have at least stopped traffic or called 911 for crying out loud! No one even went to him to check him out!

I dont want to sound like I am condoning this behavior, but... I just took a Pschology class, and I obviously am not going to claim I am an all everything, but I would like to point out that the woman who spoke in the video really brushed by the main factor that we learned about in my class. We learned about a case of a woman who was raped in her own neighborhood (everyone knew her). Many of the neighbors looked out their windows when they heard her screaming, but they didn't attempt to help her. From what we learned, this can be explained by the bystander effect, which is briefly mentioned in the video. Basicly, if there are a lot of people around when a crisis happens people assume someone else will help, probably someone more qualified and knowlageable, we tell ourselves.
My plea would be to not judge too quickly, because in the many studies that have been done on the bysander effect, the results are always the same.

ThursdayLark, I was JUST thinking of that NY case when I saw this on the news yesterday. It's amazing how people just won't help others who are in pain.

the human behavior expert said something about "pay offs". but why should anyone feel entitled to any type of reward for merely helping another human being? i understand what people are saying about not wanting to touch or move the body, but someone could have at least stopped the traffic and sat with the man until help arrived. that's what i would have done. try to talk him through it if possible.
