Passers-by at Orchard Road turned a blind eye to a man who injured himself. They ignored his pleas for help, leaving him slumped in a corner until STOMPer Jo noticed him.
The STOMPer said:
"This poor man was seen lying slumped against the wall at the escalator below tangs at the underpass leading to Orchard MRT. My wife and myself had helped him up a staircase earlier near Tangs as he was limping heavily. He then thanked us and took a rest outside Tangs.
"Half an hour later, he was on the ground and pleading for help after trying to make his way home. My wife, who is nurse, immediately ran over to help. it seemed that he had fallen down a flight of staircase earlier on.
"No one had bothered to help him when he fell and again, when slumped against the wall.
"He was writhing in pain and was in tears and no one bothered to help him.
"We then alerted SCDF as he had a probable fracture and could not move any further.
"Can u imagine the human traffic flow in the underpass on a Sunday evening? Crowded and yet Singaporeans just continued to pass by totally ignoring his pleas for help.
"The only human that day was a lone foreign worker who had ran off to the MRT control station to seek help.
"Even the mrt staff left the situation to my wife, probably as it wasn't on SMRT grounds.
"When a Ferrari driven by a foreigner crashes, the whole nation comes together blasting the driver.
"When a fellow citizen is down and in need of urgent medical assistance, a blue collared foreign worker comes to his rescue.
"The best part, countless number people just looked and walked past.
"Where are you Singaporeans?
"Minding your own business?"
