Driver Tweets Pic Of Dying Hit And Run Victim Instead Of Calling Police

Legal obligations aside, let us throw out a moral question: if you saw someone motionless in the street, critically injured following a hit and run accident, would you phone for police and render aid, or would you snap a pic of the dying victim and Tweet about it?

A nineteen-year-old driver in Edinburgh, Scotland, opted to do the latter when he saw a body in the road outside Edinburgh’s Ocean Terminal. The injured man, who had been sleeping in the road prior to being struck by a car, was later pronounced dead at the Edinburg Royal Infirmary.

According to The Daily Record, the driver in question, 19-year-old Ikram Choudhury, came upon the scene at roughly 1:55 in the morning. Stopping his car, Choudhury snapped a picture of the victim on his smartphone, then tweeted, “Eeeehm wtf? Some guy just casually lying outside Ocean Terminal.”

Choudhury then returned to his car and drove home, never checking on the victim and never dialing 999, the U.K. equivalent of our 911. Police arrived on scene at 2:10 a.m. and immediately called for an ambulance, but the victim later succumbed to his injuries.

Choudhury’s picture of the victim remained on his Twitter feed for some eight hours, until police asked him to take it down.

In Choudhury’s defense, he didn’t witness the hit and run accident and likely assumed the man was just another homeless guy, sleeping off a drunk in a rather inappropriate place. Still, common sense would have dictated a call to 999 to report a body in the road.

Police have cleared Choudhury in the actual hit and run, but the teen driver may still face charges for failing to render aid.

Let this be a reminder to all of us that life is more than an opportunity for social media recognition. The real world, with real people, real drama and, occasionally, real danger, lies beyond our computers, tablets and smartphones.

  7. Meaning what? The man probably thought it was a drunk, what he did was stupid but he didn't witness the accident so made an error of judgement. Hardly a damning indictment of the uk. Anyone mention Newton or Steubenville?

  8. Drunks on a sidewalk or on the ground maybe, but a person in the roadway? Any normal person would call for help. They could be hit (as in this case. Also hitting a body in the road could cause a death for the driver and passengers if the hit or avoidance caused the car to crash. So yes this guy was not only stupid but could have caused more deaths.

  9. But the kid didn't "cause" anything. Your argument makes no sense. Should I call 911 every time I see someone talk on their phone or have a wireless conversation on their phone, while driving? Wouldn't I be guilty of the 2600 people who die (that's in the US per year) because of cell phone related car accidents? No, we ignore that, and instead restrict rights of others because of intentional acts of those few individuals who do horrible things. What he did was tacky, despicable, inconsiderate, but he didn't "cause" anything. To follow the norm, we should pass a law making it illegal to take photos of anyone sleeping in the street, or of anyone who is about to die without calling 911 first. Problem solved.

  10. He took the time to stop, get out of his car, snap a photo and then drive away. We are all interconnected, like it or not. Following your logic, we shouldn't concern ourselves with actions that appear to be dangerous or not to be right. Personally, yes, I think people using phones while driving need a 911/999 "wake up" call. It's infuriating that it is tolerated year after year. We need to take care and concern of one another, and not sidestep these kinds of issues just because they're big issues.

  11. The Good Samaritan Law makes it illegal to NOT render aid because if, in fact, he wasn't standing there, passersby wouldn't assume that he is actually rendering aid, and might come to his aid instead.

  12. This event is not an indictment of the UK, but it's hard to imagine that the photographer in question did not notice the injuries that would have been doubtlessly incurred by being struck by a vehicle.

    At the very least, there was a human being lying in a road and nothing was done to seek aid for him in his time of need.

    We shouldn't try to normalize that, nor should we generalize this behavior to an entire nation.

They are so isolated from each other because of technology like Facebook and myspace that they are losing what makes them human, as evidenced by this Choudhury character. Add to this role models like the crew from Jersey Shore and rappers and you have a generation of trash.

  18. I disagree. I think that as technology advances, our children are disconnecting with others. My son would rather text his friends than pick up the phone and talk to them. I call him, he texts me back... if I'm lucky. lol We have lost the ability to communicate with one another. We have lost empathy for our fellow man because of the violence we see on television, youtube, etc... We are conditioning ourselves to not care for others. We, as human beings, need contact with those around us in order to learn to communitcate, empathize, and interact. Who failed this young man? Who did not teach him that someone lying on the side of the road might need help? Instead of checking on the man, he took a pic and tweeted it. Sad!

  19. Good for you, Connie, but you might want to keep the fact that you are a Republican to yourself as they have the worst record of racism imaginable. And before you claim that the bigoted south was full of racist Republicans back in your (our) youth, you know that all those racist Dems long since changed parties and are now in your club. In fact, today's Republicans are just figuring out that they need to start including non-whites in their party or they'll never win another major election again. And women's rights? Look at who and what squelched the ERA. And education standards? And who is leading the charge to slash funding to public schools? Not the Democrats.

    However, everything else you said, I agree with.

  22. So the same generation which fought against segregation also promoted racism? And this generation who also fought for women's rights and educational standards are trash? You'd prefer that blacks "know their place" and women should be in the kitchen barefoot and pregnant. And speaking of educational standards, the abbreviation is "etc.", not "ect". "Etc." is short for "et cetera" - a Latin term for "and other things". If you read Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare (and I'm guessing not, judging by your asinine post, that's why I included the author for you), you'd know that when Brutus stabbed Caesar, he (Caesar) turned to him (Brutus) and asked, "Et tu, Brute?" It means "And you, Brutus?", incredulous that his friend would stab him.

  30. David, you're absolutely right!!! Kids today are ball-less punks & thugs and have gotten what they wanted since their first breath!! The problem now is they've got some hair on their arm and think they're all grown up and expect the trend of getting what they want when they want it to continue outside even if they have to kill for it, and often they do end up killing for it! If just a handful of parents got up and said no and showed them how to act in the real world we'd be better off. You're right facebook and that is part of the problem but the main problem is mom & dad doing nothing and letting the computer raise a kid instead of them doing it. I don't have a problem with Facebook and other sites if used to teach what's right!!!

  31. Not sure how old you are, but when you were young, did you listen to rock and roll or had friends who did. Would you consider your parents right who said rock & roll was the devils music? Would you consider that everyone growing up in the 60s were listless druggies? A problem with the world, not just now, but always has been, is people putting others into categories. 200 years ago it was common for people to put all colored people into the category of 'Other', 'savage' or 'non-human', Romans 2000 years ago put everyone not roman into the box of 'barbarian'... Its been a problem throughout human history, and you David Israel, are doing exactly that by claiming that all kids today are ball-less punks and thugs. Stop stereotyping, its evil!

Quit Stereotyping David Israel, its evil.... To call all children ball-less thugs is just plain stupid.

  38. San Francisco has tons of people sleeping on the streets and in parks and gutters. This is because the city enables their condition. Taking a picture of someone sleeping by a road is normal in the USA. If the bum was not visibly bleeding, no problem. If I call the police in most American cities about someone sleeping on the ground they will tell me not to call anymore. Fact. This teen was the only person to drive by the deceased? It's the teen's fault? The teen understood the man wa critically injured? Kinda left that part out of the story.

  39. Scott, outside of San Francisco, it's a bit unusual to find a body in the street. Had the teen in question merely driven by, there'd be no story; instead, he stopped his car, got out and snapped a picture of the body for social media amusement.

    If you find that within the scope of normal and acceptable social behavior, then your standards differ from my own.

  45. Sorry, Scott, but "lots of people on the ground, sleeping away" is NOT a symptom of out-of-control socialism. Socialism hasn't worked out in the way its idealists would have wanted, but no one can say the United States of America has a socialist system in place, and be taken seriously.

    When an economy has taken advantage of unregulated immigrant workers; has at-will employment policies; permits businesses to declare bankruptcy in order to undercut labor unions and yet comfortably pays six-figure salaries to its executives; and corporations hire a bevy of tax lawyers to comb through the law to find tax loopholes, we have out-of-control capitalism.

    And you may take that to the bank.

I lived in Holland were the government gives you a house to live in, gives you your job according to your education and basically gives you a doctor to see. THAT is socialism were the government makes you completely dependent on the government. You have to ask to wipe your a s s! My brother tried going back to Holland but couldn't live like a small child for the rest of his life under socialist rule. He came back to the USA were he choose the job he wanted to do instead of the government choosing the job he was going to do!!!

This is due to parents not being home but are working so they overcompensate by giving the kids everything they want because they feel guilty for not being there.

  50. Try reading the article you're commenting on. The person wasn't sleeping "by" a road. The person was lying IN the road.

    Kinda ignored that part of the story?

    People lying IN a road are usually NOT ok, or about to BECOME not OK if a car fails to see them in time.

    YES you call Emergency about a body IN the road...paramedics and police WILL respond.

    In fact, if you have the sense, morals or compassion of the average brick, you try to find out if your Fellow Human Being (not "bum") is hurt, even try to move him/her out of harm's way.

    What you DON'T do is assume a body in a road is a homeless person sleeping--99% of the time a body IN the road DOES need help. The teen was an inhumane moron. The result: a man who might have lived, died.

  71. Nobody expects a person to be sleeping in the road in the middle of the night.

    The driver who took a photo was angry at the man for sleeping in the road. My reaction is the same, not of sympathy for the "victim". His actions made a victim of the first driver who will live with this the rest of his life, and of the second, who now has to explain his actions.

    Years ago a Texas woman was sent to prison for hitting and killing a man who was in the middle of the interstate at 4 AM. She drove home with him stuck in her windshield. She was railroaded because of false sympathy for the "victim" who deserves none. No sympathy was given the driver who was in shock.

    These were 2 suicides who took others with them.

She was drunk and on Ecstasy and the man would have lived if she had called 911 anytime in those 2 to 3 days..then she had friends dump him in the park. She was rail roaded, REALLY? Um he was a victim, he begged her to call someone, as for sympathy, she deserves none. Read up on cases before you mention them.

It's possible that the victim could have been simply walking home late at night rather than drinking and driving before being struck. This could happen to anyone, not just the ASSUMED homeless!

  77. On a completely unrelated note, 999 seems much more logical than 911. in the latter, a person has to change buttons, and if in enough distress, possibly confuse the order of the digits. With 999, one can just keep pressing the same button and after 3 strikes, it will initiate a call to emergency services. They should keep 911 in the U.S., but make another option such as 999.

  78. Ha. So many sixty and seventy year olds talking about how bad this current generation is as if their generation didn't have its fair share of psychopaths. Last time I checked your generation was filled with crazy teens who would go out on a Friday night looking for a good time and end up murdering/lynching blacks/gays for no other crime than being black/gay. Every generation has its crazies, stop generalizing before you make yourself look even more foolish

  82. This is sensationalist reporting. Mr. Ernst strongly implies in the title that the tweeter had responsibility and knowledge about the injured party, then late in the article switches to the likely scenario: that he had no knowledge the subject of his photo was injured. And he wraps the whole thing up in a hypothetical. Well-done, sir.

    Mr. Ernst, will you write a follow-up article if the man is cleared of wrongdoing? Will you remember to do that, especially given you've named Choudhury as chargeable with a criminal offense?

  84. Sadly, lacking compassion and common sense are not a crime. Half the people alive today would be in prison if it were.

  85. the guy was sleeping there before he was hit. how did they know the tweet happened before or after the hit (I know, condition). and what about the person who hit him, for crap sake? why isn't anyone questioning where that hit & run driver is??
    and what the heck, are drunks sleeping in the street that common?? shouldn't someone be looking into that little issue?
    just sayin', yeah the 29 year old is in the wrong, but so are lots of others in this little part of the world apparently.
