Bhadrak: In yet another shame on humanity, an accident victim succumbed to his injuries as onlookers were busy taking pictures and videos of the incident instead of rushing him to hospital.
Today morning, two bike-borne youths were on their way to Bhadrak when a cement-laden truck hit them from the rear on National Highway 16 near Sahapur chowk.
As a result, they lost their balance and fell on the right side of the road. The youth riding pillion came under the wheels of the truck.
The injured youth pleaded for help for over 30 minutes but instead of taking him to the hospital the crowd was busy taking pictures and videos on their smartphones.
On getting information, police reached the spot and rushed the youth to hospital but it was too late. He could have been saved if the bystanders had acted humanely and took him to the hospital in time.
