So there’s been some different points of views about the marathon runner that collapsed at the side of the road. Well he did fall twice and yes it would take a while for paramedics to get to him. But to just watch his distress without doing something to help him was unbelievable ! It was quite clear for all to see that this poor guy was not going to go any further and sadly for him the race was over! Fortunately his collapse did not become anything more serious so no CPR was necessary ( which was lucky really as people were too busy taking photographs of this guys distress.
Yes if he did refuse help and wether that was because to accept help would lead to disqualification we don’t know for certain (well I don’t anyway!) I do know that he probably was so delirious that he probably didn’t know what he was saying.
However it was quite clear to see surely that no one made any move to speak to him let alone offer a helping hand!
So lessons can be learnt and one big one surely is Help ! when someone is in such distress and pain! Or am I wrong?
