LAST weekend I witnessed an accident involving two cars, one of which had two passengers – little girls about four years of age.
I did not think twice to stop my car at the side to have a look at them. One of them unfortunately had traces of blood on one side of her forehead.
The father of the girls was evidently looking very shocked and just silently carrying his little girls on both his arms while waiting.
Twelve minutes later, the ambulance came. The father was given a form and one of the paramedics checked both the girls simultaneously.
The father did not respond quickly when one of them asked him questions and this somehow made one of the paramedics impatient.
As a result, every question asked afterwards was done in a very loud and angry tone. Would you be surprised if I tell you both the father and two girls were foreigners?
My advice to the medical team is to improve their approach and the tone and tenor of their speech, especially to those traumatised by accidents.
What if you encounter a similar situation in a foreign country only to be treated as badly by a medical team?
