Firstly - the skoda driver, he should be ashamed of himself for bringing such misfortune on somebody like this.

Secondly - I congratulate Riju for being the GOOD SAMARITAN, Bravo, we have lots to learn from you.

Thirdly - For the NHC Family on letting their Son drive the car without a liscence, though i fully dont blame them, thats a part of our INDIAN family culture.

Kudos rjstyles69

That was a great deed that you did there.

Although I do agree that the kid shouldnt have been driving but trust me we have lots of drivers who cant handle a high speed Skoda coming straight towards them, so the major fault is by the Skoda guy

I appreciate what you have done. When our Baleno had a minor crash, there were people to help and although sometimes their talks, advices seem bad at that moment, they dont refuse to help. When our M800 rear ended a truck, a near by person gave everything he could and even told my dad that he can use his jeep as tow vehichle.

I think you deserve an award for what you have done to help others. Very, very responsible citizen you are.
I think that if you had not stopped and spent your own time to help others, then for those NHC occupants, the output could have been worse.
I wonder how only the driver was wearing seatbelts, and mom and dad not wearing seatbelt. This is purely irresponsible and I hope they now take moral of the story as :
1) Dont allow underage kids to drive.
2) Always wear seat belts.

And now make that Overconfident father and overconfident son.
Just think what would happen if he was given the wheel in city driving.

I agree 100%. And I'm sure the Dad was more in shock after realizing how much worse may have happened & how close a shave they had.

Good job and hats off to you Riju.

With the father thinking that the Bandipur forest roads (with narrow roads and constant truck traffic)can be driven by a kiddie, now that's sheer negligence. Thankfully nothing bad happened and Riju,may your tribe increase in leaps and bounds.

nice move... many a times, as you correctly pointed out, its the fear of the unknown that stops us from helping.
and many a times, if we see an accident, and a crowd gathered, we assume that someone will be helping them.. and we drive on!

Great help man but two doubts emerge.
1. Didnt anyone know how to arrest a bleed? and apply the knowledge to help the victims?
2. How was a 15 16 year

Congrats from me too. Great act. The best recognition for these action is to be valued by fellow members. So team-bhp can give virtual awards in the forum for these kind of actions.

2. How was a 15 - 16 year old driving? There is no way he could have a DL. In this case negligence on the part of the dad is almost criminal.
