Human beings are supposed to be more civilized than animals. We were given dominion over the earth and all its earthly possessions. So you ask yourself, how can a human being be so self-absorbed and caught up in themselves that no one stopped to check on an 11-year old who eventually died as a result of a hit and run accident.
Based on what police say, motorists drove around the child without stopping to give any aid or assistance until one appalled motorist blocked traffic and helped the child.
See what was reported by Fox 32 Chicago:
East St. Louis police say an 11-year-old boy killed in a hit-and-run was ignored by some motorists who drove around him as he lay hurt in the street.
Detective Jason Hicks tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that another motorist stopped to block the street and help Maurice A. Richards after the Wednesday night incident. The boy later died at a St. Louis hospital.
