People ignore mother and child - level 1

People ignore mother and child - level 1

23-04-2013 14:00

There was a car accident in India. A mother and her child died. Father and son were OK. They asked for help. Nobody helped them. People ignored them.

Some cars stopped but people in the cars only looked. They didn't help. The father and son stood there. They didn't know what to do. Later, people from the hospital arrived. They put the dead bodies in their car. The car moved the bodies away. People from the hospital had no respect for the dead bodies.

The mother and child could be alive if the help came earlier.

Interesting words: ignore (not to help or do something), arrive (come), alive (not dead), earlier (before some time).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
