Whatever happened to the Good Samaritan?A teen saw a dying hit-and-run victim lying in a bus lane in Scotland, and instead of calling the cops he took a picture and posted it on Twitter, the Daily Record reported Monday.
Ikram Choudhury, 19, reportedly tweeted “Eeeehm wtf? Some guy just casually lying outside Ocean Terminal,” and told his followers that the guy was drunk.
When the followers asked Choudhury why he wasn’t helping the man, he joked that he was scared of sexual assault, according to the Record.
Some Twitter users reportedly scorned Choudhury for not helping the victim out, and one of them, Keanne Brown, even called him “sick.”
The victim, who was hit by a car that didn’t stop after impact, reportedly lay without help for 15 minutes before police arrived and took him to the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.
He died at the hospital due to head and internal injuries, according to the Record.
Choudhury might be prosecuted for not helping the victim, but is not a suspect in the actual hit-and-run, according to the Record. The teen’s Twitter page has apparently been taken down.
