Furthermore, the video shows how most of the people reacted to it — by swarming around the victim instead of calling an emergency unit for help.

Maria Ovalo, the owner of the video, stated in her post:



The child could have been revived if these people knew how to deal with an emergency like this.




More netizens were outraged:




Some also asked why the people had to wait for the victim’s mother before they responded.




This scenario is yet another PROOF that it is really important for us to learn how to give First Aid.



We MUST learn from this. Read Maria Ovalo’s post again with emphasis.



In case of emergency, you may call 117 (National Emergency Phone Number) or any nearby hospital so that they could send an ambulance and paramedics. Read and learn First Aid basics to help save lives, especially your family.
