@firebird, this was truly a great act you did. You did your best to save his life, take heart in the fact that you did what most people would not have done - try to save a strangers life.
It is unfortunate he did not make it. May his soul rest in peace.
We can only do the best we can, the rest is not in our control.
Note to all Bikers: Please please wear helmets and ride carefully. Almost everyday I see bigger vehicles dodging careless bikers on the road and think how many lives were saved today. Please put a higher price on your lives.

The satisfaction you derive from this noble deed is your best reward. And I, for one would NEVER shy from helping any injured after reading the way the cops co-ordinated with you. Hats off to you and Mumbai police!!
Edit: Wish the hospitals also were that co-operative. Hope this "admission was allowed because cops were with me" statements are not needed in the future.

God Bless you man! You acted like a true HUMAN being!
6 months ago i too was a motorcycle accident victim. If i hadn't got help in time i wouldn't have been here now. In my case the motorist who hit me did not take me to the hospital it was couple of friends and cops who took me to the hospital in the police jeep.

i salute you for doing it, and i just hope that more and more people in our country come forward and do such things.
only then our country can be considerate.
i hope this serves as a lesson to all people who would like to drive away under such situations.

Thanks guys for the support you have shown.
I am no Hero guys. I am a comman man. Now when I think about the incident and revisit what I have written, I can't believe that was me. It all just happened in matter of 30 mins to 45 mins...
I cannot imagine the loss his family has suffered.
I am not against any biker or per say two wheeler. Till yesterday I used to only read in the news paper about the biker accidents and loss of life. Today I was a party to it in trying save poor soul. I have started feeling that Mumbai Roads are no more safe for two wheelers. It is not due to the fact that riders do road-rash, but even cars zoom past them in flick of second or road condition has worsen.
Today I thank my dad for not letting me buy a 2 wheeler when I was a college student. I do not want to hurt anybody, but this is my feeling from today's incident.

You did what you were supposed to do. I salute you.
The unfortunate boy could not be saved because of many things. But you did what you could. Even this many of us avoid.
This incident will change your life forever. The way you look at life from now on will be different from how you saw it before. It will be much richer.
All the best and keep up the good work.

And there are 5 - 6 T junctions. At all T-Junctions, cars so not have visibility of traffic that is going to merge from Link road.

What you have done today Firebird is something many refrain from doing because of the hassles they may encounter after the incident. It is very commendable that acted quicky and took that guy to the hospital. It is unfortunate that he passed away but then there are somethings which are not in our control. Take solace from the fact that you tried your best.
Keep the spirit up. Well done. A very noble gesture.
