JERUSALEM (Reuters) - More than two dozen Israeli motorists maneuvered around the dead body of a road accident victim lying in the middle of a busy intersection, failing to stop to help in an incident captured by a traffic camera.
In footage broadcast by Israeli television stations on Monday and in a series of photographs on newspaper front pages, motorcyclist Moshe Yisraeli was seen trying to squeeze between two trucks at a junction on a highway near Tel Aviv Sunday.
He never made it. The camera captured his body lying near the centre of the four-way intersection, his motorcycle meters away on its side.
Some 30 cars and trucks slowed down and then carefully drove around the prone motorcylist in a stream of traffic that continued for nearly two minutes before a driver stopped his vehicle and approached the body.
It is so unfortunate that in all parts of the world and in all societies, there are people who have little concern for the well being of others.
