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.

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.
