No Help Given to a Indian Man after an Accident

Posted on April 16, 2013

An accident in Jaipur, India was completely ignored by passing motorists and pedestrians who did not stop to help the family that was seriously injured in the middle of the street.

Kanhaiyalal Raigher was on a motorbike that he was driving through a tunnel when he was hit by a truck. Since his wife and kids were sitting in the pillion, they were killed in the accident. His 8-month-old daughter was the one that was fatally injured. The driver of the truck left the scene immediately.

There is video footage that shows that Raigher and his young son look for assistance for their family, but they are waved away by other drivers.  Apparently, it took 20 minutes for anyone to offer help, but there is another news source that believes it may have taken an hour for anyone to alert emergency officials so that the man could get some medical care and the bodies could be checked and removed from the road.

There is another source that claims that the family was helped by an ambulance 10 minutes after the collision. However, it is still clear that passersby ignored the entire traumatic situation and went about their days without giving Raigher a helping hand.

There are even reports that the daughter could have been saved if medical treatment had been given to her as soon as the accident occurred.

The tunnel that the accident took place in is called Ghaat Ki Guni and is off-limit for two-wheeled travelers but the rule is often ignored in the interest of saving time.

It is truly horrific to think that a fellow human being wouldn’t reach out to save someone from such a tragic incident. Bystander effects have been studied over the years and it is true that people get paralyzed in situations like that and believe that another person will help so they wait. However, in this situation it seems there was a blatant disregard for the well-being of this family after the crash.
