The bicyclist was struck by a car at the Beulah junction in St. Philip around 5:00 pm.
While he sat nursing his injury to his right leg, a slew of passers-by asked if the emergency responders were contacted - 'Called the police?', 'Call the ambulance?' To which, the driver involved in the accident responded, 'The ambulance is on its way.'
The driver and bicyclist chatted on the side as they awaited the emergency services. This was no hit-and-run situation.
But it was the general outpouring of consideration from constant persons driving by and stopping that was refreshing. They were not trying to capture pictures, videos nor were they just "maliciousing", that touched the victim's heart despite his pain.
When a group of bicyclists arrived on the scene, there was a chorus of 'Oh no' and many offered to call the police and ambulance, only to learn that such had been done already.
We wish him a speedy recovery.
Barbados continues to show that kindness is not dead.
