Child Set On Fire, Screams For Help — Bystanders Pull Out Phones Instead
COVINGTON, GEORGIA — A little kid is recovering in a local hospital with severe burns after his body went up in flames. And everyone around stood by, simply pressing “record.”
What’s happening to humanity? Have we all but forgotten what it means to live in reality?
It’s situations like these that show the craze of social media virality. Sure. Go viral. But not at the cost of a child’s life.
And while it seems like a simple fix — “just f**king help” — it’s psychologically more complex than that, according to Psych Central. But, we’ll delve deeper into that after the story.
Nevertheless, according to WSB-TV 2, the child is only 8-years-old. You would think that fact, alone, would spark something greater than social media notoriety in a person, right?
Well, if you ask the child’s mother, she’ll tell you first-hand that wasn’t the case.
