My husband came home home this evening quite upset. he had been driving along a city road when he saw something in the gutter ahead. There were several cars in front of him that passed 'it'. As he got nearer he saw clearly that 'it' was a young teenager lying motionless in the gutter,his head in the road. All the other vehivles drove on and as e passed to turn around in a driveway, a pedestrian walked passed looking. MY HUSBAND HAD TO WAIT FOR THE 5 CARS THAT PASSED THE CHILD TO PASS HIM BEFORE HE COULD GET OUT TO GO BACK! He pulled up and flagged down the car that was approaching the child. An ambulance was called and they took him away,to hospital. I suppose we'll never know what had happened to the boy or how he gets on. What has upset my husband is how many people passed him and drove on and the man that walked passed. What sort of a world are we living in that has a child left lying in the gutter? He was so close to being killed by the passing cars. What sort of a world are we living in that puts the child there alone, for whatever reason?
