2) She was waiting for the ambulance or kind hearted motorist or policeman to help her.
3) She was waiting for the ambulance or kind hearted motorist or policeman to help her, saving her son was the first priority over contacting her husband, since the motorists were on the scene and the ambulance was coming.
4) The child died on the way to the hosptial.

Sorry I didn't post the whole story which you can no doubt find it with google.


No, I didn't google to get the story.  I didn't have the time.  But thanks for the additional information.

So, the mother did do the normal thing and called the ambulance but, without waiting for its arrival, ran frantically in the street to plead for help from passing motorists and the policeman who happened to be there ?

Did the story say how long it took the ambulance to arrive?

My next question to you is would you act in the same way as the mother if you were her ? [If this is calling too much into your imagination, you need not answer.  But would you give an opinion of your own as a bystander watching what was going on ?

I had an earlier question but I didn't ask.  I guess it is also immaterial given the mother's state of mind.

I remember you did earlier (in another thread) say that if you were the motorist at the time, you would give the mother and son a lift.  Question is, if the son died in your car and he did die on the way, how are you going to explain his death?

So she called the ambulance ... and then asked a policeman for help before the ambulance arrived.

And you have a problem with this?

I have more of a problem with the policeman who refused to help!

And with people, like yourself, who post dumb remarks demanding that a mother who was frantic with worry should only act in a certain way .. trying to shift blame towards a mother (by demanding different behaviour) who is worried her child is dying is sordid.

You don't get it don't you?! He was telling you that everybody's have the right to 'protect' themselves from getting blamed for the death of the child. In other words, it's 'OK' to ignore the woman and let the child to die on the streets. Nothing's wrong with that in China. That's what he means. Aren't you sick of it? Anymore desire to continue this sick discussion with him? Ignore the bastard!

When accidents happen, best thing to do is to call the ambulance & the police,
and when someone has already called the ambulance,
best thing to do is to wait for the ambulance to arrive,
it won't be too long for it to arrive on the accident scene,
accident cases are best handled by trained ambulance staff,
you could do more harm than good if you're not trained in emergency cases.
Please don't shoot, I'm just a babe.

Don't be a smart alec,
let trained ambulance staff handle accident cases,
When you witness an accident happen before your eyes, best thing to do is to call the ambulance service & the police,
and you would already have done your part if you have called the ambulance service & reported it to police.
So don't be a smart alec.

If I were approached by that lady,
I would ask her if she had called the ambulance service,
if the answer is yes, then I would tell her to wait for the ambulance to come,
try to assure her that it won't be too long for the ambulance to arrive,
and it's best handled by ambulance staff who are trained in handling accident cases.
Mishandling injured accident victims by well meaning passers-by could cause more harm than good.
Probably all the motorists she asked to  help were also told that she already called the ambulance service,
that's why they just left her alone to wait for the ambulance to arrive. That's nothing wrong at all.
