Well its been a while since I had blog about anything. I just been busy with so much that I had not time to write. Now on to the reason why I found it important to blog about what had just happen this wee early morning. Do we live in a world were no one cares about anything anymore? Has some Vancouverites become so selfish that they can’t spare two minutes to help someone who has fallen or hurt themselves?
Hears what happen!
After work I had taken the bus towards my house. I had got off the bus and started walking towards my block. I Had pass the busy A20 pizza shop on Main ST and proceed down Georgia ST. As I walked down the street a women had just left the escort agency from the office building which the pizza shop is under and walked towards grey car(her personal driver was waiting) that was parked on the opposite side of the block right by the alley. As she walked across the street towards the car, there was a male about 5,7 wearing nothing more than an orange T-shirt and what look like jeans walking down that same part of the block. Its less then 2 degrees out and 2am in the morning.
All of the sudden he face planted on the ground, I heard his head hit the ground it was so loud that I heard it though my music and my headphones. I pause for a second to see if the women was going to help. then I saw a black BMW pulled into the alley entrance and had stop. I figure either the women or the person driving the BMW would help the fellow, So I kept walking. about less than half of the way down the block I saw the grey car with the escort pass me slowly. They were probably checking a map to find their next client location.
I turned around to look back to see if the BMW was still there and it drove off as I turned. I quickly cross the street and look down to see if the person was still on the floor? As I walked towards the were the person had fallen I notice what look like a person on the ground still. I started to get worry because of how cold it is out and maybe he was left in the freezing cold. I approach the person and notice a pool of blood on the floor right were his head was and he was some what conscious. I ask him if he was still awake and told him I was going to call the Ambulance. I called 911 and got a hold of them. The dispatch told transfer me to them. so I told them what had happen. they then told me to get the person age, check to see if he still awake. I ask him and i notice the smell of beer on him. I ask him if he was intoxicated? The person responded yes he intoxicated.
As I was waiting for the Ambulance to arrive the London pub on the corner had just closed up and people were leaving. a few good people walked over and saw him on the floor and ask what happen and wanted to call the paramedics. I had told them that I had called and they are on their way. A police car had passed and the officer didn’t even notice the 5 of us that was standing there. finally we heard the sirens going so we all knew the ambulance was near. The people and I had a bit of relief with the sound of the siren getting closer. When the search and rescue got there they started to check the person and deal with him. I notice he had a big cut on his head from hitting the ground. It was right across his forehead about 2 IN. The pool of blood was about 1/4 of the litre on the floor and started to freeze already. The paramedics brought out the stretcher and place him on it after they cover up the big gash on his head. they started asking him question about what happen and if he drunk?
The paramedics said he will be OK. they said he a regular. They told me that thankfully I was there because If i wasn’t he could have frozen to death in the cold. I explained to him that there was other people here but I though they calleD! They didn’t care to call and just left him there so I came back over to call them. check and found the person here still! The women that was part of the group of people who came over from the pub thanked me as well and said the same thing the paramedic said about how he could have frozen to death out here. I told them I was worried when i notice no one was helping him. The paramedic said we can all go now and thank me.
My thoughts on this!
Thank fully I looked back and wanted to make sure someone was helping him! I can’t believe the women that watch it happen and walked right pass him didn’t help him! The person in the BMW was probably the drug dealer that was meeting the women that was going to the car. But come on the women could have taken 20 second to call a paramedic. The drug dealer well he could have as well. but no he just sat in the alley way with his car and watch the guy bleeding out of his forehead most likely.
I don’t care what your job or deal is It only take 20 second to call the paramedics and wait 5 mins for them to show up! Some people just don’t care for other! even when they are in need of help right in front of them.
I wish I could write about how wonder the people and the city is but as of right now I cant!
What a sick city I live in!
