People ignore mother and child - level 2

People ignore mother and child - level 2

23-04-2013 14:00

A man and his son were left without help in the middle of a busy street in India. The mother and her child died in an accident. Father and son who survived were trying to get help but no one cared.

Some cars stopped but people in the cars only had a look and they continued. The man and his son stood there for almost 20 minutes. Later, an ambulance arrived and moved the dead bodies away. They treated the dead bodies as if they were garbage, without any respect.

If the help had arrived earlier, the mother and child may still be alive.

Interesting words: treat (behave in some way), garbage (dirty waste).

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