I FOUND A DEAD GUY!

I found a dead guy, or at least what I'd thought was one! I was driving one day dropping off my sister on my way to work. I pulled up to a stop light and this guy just wouldn't move. So people started going around. I went around also. However, when I looked back to find out what could be making him just sit there, this guys head was slumped to his chest! So I slam on my breaks and pull over. I get out of my car, braving traffic with cell phone in hand on the phone to 911(emercency for those of you who aren't american) So They tell me to find out if he's breathing, I watch his chest I even touch him. He was still warm. His car was running and IN DRIVE! They tell me to reach into the car and turn it off, however the keys are on the INSIDE, and there's just NO ROOM! So I poke this guy a few times calling out to him right in his ear! No response! I start to freak out because this is totally dangerous. I'm standing in the middle of the street, Cars not stopping, even a woman IN MEDICAL SCRUBS walks right on by! Why doesn't anyone BUT ME CARE?! So I continue to poke this guy. Nothing happens. And so I'm waiting for the emergency vehicles to arrive, this guy suddingly JUMPS AWAKE, and looks at me Like I'M ATTACKING HIM! And he almost RUNS ME OVER without thought. Luckily I jumped back and thankfully there wasn't traffic at that particular moment, otherwise, for being a good samaritian I could have been creamed by traffic! Has ANYTHING this weird EVER happened to any of you!?

Something almost the same happened to us years ago. Someone next to us was driving really eratically, I thought he was drunk. At the next red light my husband jumped out of our car, opened the mans door and took this guys keys !!! This was before the days of cell phones (well for us anyway) so I ran to a nearby store and had them call 911. Turns out the guy was having a diabetic reaction. When he "came to" he didn't know anything that had gone on, and just wanted to get home. You're good for having stopped :)

I have been in the shoes of the guy you helped! A couple of years ago I had a bad diabetic reaction while driving. I made it into a parking lot and stopped the car. That was the last thing I remember until I woke up in an ambulance some time later. Never did find out anything about the good samaritans that called emergency on me.

Hi! Oh, you poor angel! I'm glad you weren't hurt! What a frightening experience! You were very kind to care about the man and even though no one seemed to notice how kind you were at the time, you will find rich blessings in your life for being such a good person.

No that has never happened to me. I did watch a person shoot a cat right in front of me. He was a mentally disturbed person. He said he did it to teach me a lesson.
