Tragedy struck around Satellite town community in Lagos State, early Tuesday [May 19] morning, when a man who was jogging slumped and died, before he could receive help.
According to Nigerian Tribune, nobody was at the spot when the yet to be identified man slumped, even as residents and passersby, who saw him lying on the ground thought he was having rest.
The reality of the incident, however, dawned on them, when one of the children of the man, who was going to school, at the early hours, saw his father lying flat on the ground.
An eyewitness, who simply identified himself as Brandy, condemned what he described as negligence by a crowd, who gathered around the body of the man, at the scene without doing anything about the heart-chilling incident.
“I was on my way to work this morning when I saw this man, who allegedly slumped and died, while jogging at Stepping Stone Bus Stop. He should be between the ages of 55 – 60. His son, who was going to school, saw him with people clustering around his body.
The most painful thing is many people saw him lying down there since early this morning, and when I asked them how it happened, they said they thought he was resting after jogging.
“It’s very unfortunate people just stood there watching him for hours without doing anything. They have been there for more than an hour and they could not do anything”, Brandy said.
