A MOTHER has condemned Britain’s “walk on by society” after rush-hour commuters not only ignored her unconscious schoolboy son but even stepped over him. Oliver Tiplady, 14, was wearing his school uniform on a tram platform at 8am when he suddenly fainted and cracked his head on the concrete. But rather than rushing to help, hundreds of commuters ignored him, with some even stepping over the child to board their tram.
I might could have seen this happen in the US, but England? What are we becoming?

Oh my God! I'm in the UK, and I can't believe ANYBODY could be so heartless! I've never witnessed anything like that happening, but I have seen people collapse and been among the numerous people who've rushed to help. Please don't get the impression the OP article is typical of us here. It's shocking, and bewildering.
And having watched that clip of the toddler being repeatedly run over and ignored has broken my heart.
