This is really sad. Just console yourself that you did everything possible.

Was the biker wearing a helmet?

May his soul rest in peace

@Firebird,
You did your best, but there are some things that are not in your hands.
Just relax and don't feel remorse about it.

@Nikhil, Apparently the biker wasn't wearning a helmet.

Indeed a great gesture and humanly act.
But unfortunately the fate was against him -inspite of all the helps (your timely action, the prompt assitance from the cop and the gentleman in the bike who came with you to the hospital all are very praiseworthy), a life was lost because of not wearing a HELMET ?
A New vehicle became the End for the youg man -may his soul rest in peace !

No Mate....No helmet

Bike too brand new with TC number, so he might be a novice out for a fun ride or trying the bike.

I am not able to come out the feeling that they lost him. I am no doctor by profession to see this as a usual accident case.

Anyways...it's Mumbai...life goes on...

All you Young bikers out there in Team-BHP, please please , use your helmet instead of keeping it for a next traffic light manned by a traffic cop.

Helmet saves life. The poor soul could have been a human today if he was wearing helmet.

Hats off to your Firebird, needs a lot of courage to do what you have done.

Sorry to hear about the biker but mate you did your best.

Firebird - Your gesture is simply great ! This is one of those moments we realize that there are greater things in life like trying to save the life of a person than being on time for a meeting.

It is really unfortunate that the biker passed away but you did everything you could to save his life, although I agree you would have been happier if the guy had been saved.

The flip side of this incident is that a life was lost but the brighter side is that you had the intention, willingness and the heart to help someone and this is all that counts. Not everyone can be like you.

A very noble deed Fireblade. I can understand what you are going through, but keep the faith mate. You proved that human beings care for and help one another. What you did today will give faith to a lot of people, trust me.And just keep this in mind, though the doctors could not save the person, his family will always be indebted to you knowing that you atleast gave him a fighting chance to survive by taking him to the hospital at the earliest and did not let him bleed to death on the street.May the deceased soul rest in peace.

I salute you mate! For your courage and not flinching when the finger was pointed at you - asking if YOU were willing to take a victim of an accident to hospital. Something that we wish we never came across but would do a double take when facing a situation like that.

You did what you could, may the guy rest in peace. Alas, another loss due to a biker not wearing a helmet. I wish some people would read this post and remember to wear a good helmet the next time they ride their bikes.

Good stuff by the cops too! Hats off to them - may both your tribes increase!

Hi Firebird, I live in Interface. I too had a accident sometime back (around a month) and thankfully escaped with just some road-rash. I would like to meet up with you sometime as a goodwill gesture from a biker. We people are often rubbished and ignored. Its too bad that the person passed away. May his soul RIP. Its like the old saying goes "It only hurts until you die" Please do get in touch with me via PM.

@ FirebirdWhat you had done was really commendable. You have shown that humanity still exists in the otherwise concrete jungle. Hats off to you. Your act will inspired many to not be just a passerby but saving angels. What happened was not your fault. You did your thing. I know you would be feeling bad but you need to overcome it. You have made Team BHP proudFor once I accept that Mumbai Police are humans too as they did everything to help you and also took control of the situation May the biker's sould rest in peace
