How do you react when you see an accident?
Imagine you are driving to the office in your new car ,which you bought the other day .The day is bright and the road is clear. You hit on the gas pedal but owing to a sudden traffic pileup, You step on the Brakes and pull over your car..Coming to the scene..
The next scene you find is that there has been an accident ahead and as usual there is a crowd gathered near the vehicle. There is an injured person but needs urgent medical attention. Now comes the Question?
Do you wait for the ambulance that is stuck somewhere in the traffic?
Do you check the watch and move ahead to your office?
Do you think that your new car would get dirty and you would unnecesarily waste time in the police station and thus dont take any trouble to offer a helping hand.?
The ambulance finally might arrive but it would be too late for the injured. Many of us have this initial inhibition to run away and avoid the situation of helping our own citizens because of all the legal wrangles and time involved in the accident. But we need to remind ourselves that God forbid, if tomorrow we are in an accident situation, we need our own fellowmen to rescue us in the nick of time.
By just imagining yourself as a vicitm of the accident is enough to unconditionally offer help to save one’s life during accidents.
Any legal hassle, police enquiries or any time involved are all incomparable to the rewards you get for saving the victim’s life. So when you are in this kind of situation Here are the first things you could offer to do.
