In the US, we shun the elderly. Mostly. Hide them away, we are the google-youth! No reminders of mortality!

Also, Scott_2150, the sad thing, this being London, is he just made off with his wallet.

The sad thing is, is that this being in London, he probably got a parking ticket for mounting the pavement...

@Bakcagain: You won me over bro So I took a second & third look at "blue bag lady" and gave her the pass... this time. Two reasons: Motorcycle coming on sidewalk and 2 people were already attending fallen man.

@edana42: This is not from China. There have been a couple of videos of people in desperate situations (in China) and multiple onlookers UTTERLY ignore them.
Child hit by car? Ignore.
Woman falls into hole? Ignore.
Man beating child? Ignore.
& etc.

@artmunki: I think there's more to it than just that: It's a "cultural intolerance" of anyone outside "your network". They have a rigid hierarchy and if you're too low on the scale? Ignore.

Very heartwarming! Faith restored. But I seemed to have missed - how do we know it is from China, and is cameras in helmets common?

I second what HolyGod said. Being from the South this is not unusual at all and is expected. Now the video from China...that was horrifying. And they say America is loosing its morals.

@5cats haha

Years ago I walking back from school and and saw old lady fall over outside her house and couldn't get up. I had to cross the street and jog upto her, she was calling out for help. Other people were a lot closer and did nothing... Helped upto her door and went on my way... You can find fails in humanity everywhere.

Strangely I seem to attract old people asking for help in general... Guess I have one of those friendly faces.

The reason people in China will often ignore others who have fallen is because of a few relatively recent and much-discussed cases where the person doing the helping was ultimately held legally responisible for a significant proportion of the medical bill of the injured party. Anyone who isn't wealthy would naturally hesitate to help someone if there was a chance that this help might result in them being hit with a huge medical bill.
And although I hope it's redundant to mention, I will note that this is deplorable. But it's deplorable on the part of the legal system which reached these judgements, and not necessarily on the part of innocent people scared of being hit with a huge bill. I have no doubt that Chinese people would naturally be every bit as helpful as people anywhere else if they weren't worried about the possibility of substantial legal penalties for doing so.

Is this really that shocking? That's sad.

I can't even imagine not doing that.

Gosh, videos of white people sure are different from videos of black people.

Heart warming! I wish more people were like these three!

(To be fair, the lady with the blue bag -might- have been alarmed by a motorcycle coming onto the sidewalk... and not just being a jerk...)

@Bakcagain has convinced me to show more empathy and flexability Who says we don't learn & change with our IAB discussions? (Horse Puncher discussion, eh?)
