Drowning man dies due to people's negligence

The passersby chose to take pictures and videos instead of helping him.

In this technology age that we are now accustomed to, the urge of preserving a moment through capturing it using a device is almost inevitable. Many people succumb to the temptation of capturing every moment but we should always be reminded that there is limit to that too.

This unfortunate incident is one example of people who gave into the temptation of just flipping out their phones and seize the moment as a man drown in a river.

It happened when an alleged intoxicated man fell into a river in Thailand. Passersby flock onto the scene but instead of helping him, they ignored the plight of the man and used their phones to film the incident.


The bystanders did nothing to help the drowning man who was obviously seeking for help. They were just standing there and took photos and filmed the agony of the man. They prioritized posting their content to social media instead of helping.



What happened to them is what you call the bystander effect, which is a social psychological phenomenon that refers to cases in which individuals do not offer any means of help to a victim when other people are present. The probability of help is inversely related to the number of bystanders.
