Good Samaritan implores Thais to help people in distress

A Thai woman has gone online to beg Thais to help people in distress after her experience finding a fellow female in trouble at the weekend.

 

"Dang Photas" on her Facebook page said that she was in a taxi going home in the RCA area of Bangkok when she noticed a young woman by the roadside with a bloodied face.

 

She told the taxi driver to pull over and spoke to the woman who told her that her boyfriend had bit her mouth opening up a severe wound on her lips. They had been arguing after a trip out to the Sukhumvit area and she was now left without money as he had her purse.

 

The poster said she took the woman to hospital in the taxi while the driver called 191 fearing that she had actually been the victim of criminals.

 

At the hospital the Good Samaritan gave the victim her phone number in case of further emergencies as she had no idea of the number of her relatives.

 

It turned out she was actually a nurse.

 

"Dang" said that when people come across others in distress it was important to help out in any way you can, reported Manager online.

Fair play, Dang, well done in assisting the young lady.

However, if tough sentences were handed out to people using violence, acting as a deterrent to others, a lot of instances like this would never happen. The longer the perpetrators are allowed to get away with a paltry fine, and a meaningless wai, the violence will continue.

Wow, really? That's the best you could do?

Goes for sick & injured animals too. Don’t just ignore them either. I’ve seen a lot of that recently.

What exactly have you seen?  Did you assist?

Yes I did. Just last week. A dog was hit by a car & left on the road 1.5 meters off the sidewalk & in front of a bank. Nobody did anything, instead they walked & drove right past it. I called a vet. By the time it got there the dog had died.

Thats one recent incident.

Normally Thais take a photo with their phone of accidents or distress, so to get publicity in social media or even financial gain!

So you haven't seen a lot, then. 

 

Vets have an emergency call out service now? That's useful to know, a lot of people here would like to assist as you did, what is the call out service number, please?   Why didn't you just take the dog to the vet?

Would you like the complete list?

It wasn’t a call out service. It was the vet I use for my dog.

I was looking around for something to muzzle the dog. It was in shock & terrified. Do you want to try & pick it up? It was also quite a large dog & by moving it (as with any victim of a road accident) is not highly recommended. But I take it, you knew that. If not, you do now!

Look in your area for a vet. There are also animal hospitals. But again, you would know that.  Duhhh.

No, just one number would be helpful, is there a problem with that? 

 

"Duhhh"?  What's up with you?

I was about to ask you the same thing. Your initial comment seemed just a little too weird & sarcastic. Anyways, no harm, no foul. Good day to you sir.

...and no vet's number that the rest of us may be able to use?  Now that is what is weird.

Really?

Try a local vet. Ask around. I’m sure it’s not a national 119 call.

My vet is localized to her area in Isaan. She doesn’t cover all of Thailand. There are vets in every city I would imagine.

Are you all there or just weird?
