    Would you stop and help and elderly person laying injured in the street?

    An elderly lady was left laying injured in the street after falling. She asked for help but people just walked on by.

    I would certainly help if she was lying in the street, but it's unlikely I would render assistance if she was laying.

      Point taken. Thanks Rupert. I cannot edit because I do not know how yet. Poor woman was left injured and lying in the street.

      It was on the news this morning and no one offered her help. Poor woman asked at least ten people for help before someone did help her. Thanks for your comment peter.

      Jack I was shocked when I saw this story on the news this morning. Of course I would have helped the poor lady but many people walked by and did not help her. Apparently some do not want to get involved and I find that sad. Thanks for comment.

      Get "involved" in what?!  Being human and offering help to someone in need?  Good grief.  Now we've heard it all.
