It was a hot day in our little coastal town yesterday afternoon, so after a long day at school my eldest boy went with a couple of friends to the beach. After a couple hours swimming the boys headed for home on their skateboards.
Coming down the road my sons skateboard wheels hit a patch of loose pebbles on the path and needless to say lost control and fell off rolling along the path before coming to a sliding halt in the road. His mates caught up to him and after learning that my son had hit his head and was light headed, the boys sat him down and asked a passing motorist for help, the couple in their late 40’s than stated “no we can’t” and drove off down the road.
The boy’s than walked along the road until my husband who was in his way to pick them up drove past, after seeing his right arm bleeding, burnt from the ground and missing skin and complaints if a sore wrist off to the hospital we went , a patched up arm and a fractured wrist he is now regretting his little stunt, showing off as boys do and sleeping peacefully after some pain relief.
I still find it hard to swallow and understand or to fatham how someone could drive off on kids or anyone for that matter, it’s just plain heartless.
