What a "good" friend!?

China
September 20, 2011 6:29pm CST
An about 20-year-old boy died for an accident but his accompanier never asked any others for help before he died! That boy had freshly finished his college entrance exams,and his companier has a new job already,they often play together and their parents work,live in the same school and they are familliar one another. But one night of this summer the boy went to a bar drinking and singing till about 3 o'clock the next morning.Then the two boys drove an electric bike home.On the way home they fell off the bike and the companier woke up and found that the boy lost consciousness but he walked home alone and didn't do anything to help the boy!My,what a "good" friend!

Such type of friend is inferior to stranger .How come that heartless guy was to the point where he stalked off after waking up as if nothing had happened,left his friend lost consciousness alone.Providing the boy was taken to hospital in hot haste,he perhapse had a slim chance of survival.I dread to think of how the boy's parents were affected by that at that point.And again,I ponder over the matter.I feel that now some young people are so ruthless and self-centred and low in emotional quotient.

But the boy's parents have no choice except facing the music and accepting the fact.What's more,it's so hard for them to bear another child for age!

People now days are very selfish and self serving. It is sad that these people didn't have better friends. I think in situations like this it is a good time to see how your supposed friends act. That is why a history with people is so important so we know how people will act.

Yes,I think you are very right.Since I've grown quite old,I don't think making too many friends is good since we cannot help one another on earth.I just want to say:"Neither be a depender,nor a supporter!"

Is this a true story? It seems like the friend or both of them were drunk. The possibility of drunkenness could cloud judgment. Another possibility may have to do with blackout or concussion in the head. Each fall off the bike. The impact of the fall may have affect brain functioning or consciousness. If this is a true story, it lacks the detail of whether they were both drunk. How severe was the fall?

Yes, we have have many friends in life, but out of which, how many of them can we really trust? MOst friends are there to take advantage of us, or being there for the sake of fun, have someone to hang out with and that's it. Friends like these are like empty shells, having the physical person, without the soul. That's also why i find annoying to see people claiming to have many friends, when nobody would bother to help when they are in trouble.

A friend in need is a friend indeed.We cannot make friends of that kind.

Yes dear friend, what a good friend and what a great story. I am really impressed if this is a real story and everyone should follow him.

Hey,my new friend!Why don't you believe it?The case has really happened around me,but you never believe it!That means most of us are not willing to accept such a case.The other night I could see the parents of the boy were crying in the court while in the sentencing spot on TV!The boy's father is my previous colleague and leader!

Sometimes there are moments of panic....and when the youth realized that they had been drinking and had an accident he probably got scared....yes that is not being a good friend but sometimes life hands us decisions to make and we don't always do the right thing!

Maybe you are right.It's said the boy's companier was very honest,but he could do some making-up in time after the accident,and a stranger often does so as long as he faces such a thing!But he never.

the "friend" was guilty of failure to render aid.

It seemed that he's never guilty for that---He didn't go to the boy's home to say "Sorry!" untill his parents brought him to do so!I don't know why till now,I'm so afraid of good friends of this kind!

It takes all kinds of people these days. People just do not care for one another anymore. they just do not think beyond themselves or care.

Oh,the moral values of society are worsening day by day!Such a young and close friend never gave a hand to the other facing such a serious accident,I think few people can accept that.

It's hard to make a comment without knowing the whole story. They were probably both intoxicated. The first guy might have been in shock or too inebriated to know what he was doing when he left his friend. If he was aware he may have just thought that his friend would soon come round and go home as well. I'm pretty sure at 3am there would not be many people around to ask for help...and if there were, why would he need to ask...wouldn't people automatically offer to help them both?

According to what one of the guy's colleagues said,he's a quite good young man.But he didn't help his friend indeed!And even when he walked to the school gate,he talked with the doorkeeper for a while but he never mentioned it till he called his another friend after he's in bed!See,what's the explaining?Hehe.

The most of the people in the world are too selfish. I am asking a question if any of his family member in that place he will leave as usual. I am just biting my teeth don't have a chance to scold the guy.

I agree with you,Asasikumar05.So I'm always as careful as possible while outside my home or anywhere in case I get myself in trouble and never win any help.And I can tell you,my friend:It's said that guy works near my home!But I don't know him,and I don't want to know him,he's never worth scolding,I think.

Omg that was really careless and selfish of him. But do you think the "friend" was too drunk to notice what happened? And did the other boy die?

Wow, this is horrible. I can't believe he didn't help his friend. I understand getting in trouble for drinking and driving. But this is now murder. I would rather get a ticket and put on probation then let my friend die. It would be interesting to find out why he just left his friend. Best Wishes!

Yes,I can't accept that,either.That guy never helped the boy until over 8 o'clock the next morning a passer-by noticed that and called the police! But we never know why he did so,and the police didn't find enough proofs to judge he's a murder!

hi, real/good friends really hard to find now days,good friends are those who will never you down no matter what happens,those who will never ever left you in any kind of situation in your life,but we always beware to those plastic/unreal friends.
