People who lose consciousness in the street meet with various reactions. Mostly, a man lying on the sidewalk or near it is completely drunk. Rarely it is drugs. Then passers-by are indifferent. But such a reaction can be dangerous when someone has epilepsy or another disorder. So, knowing about Polish drinking habits, it is hard to predict how witnesses will react. Law doesn`t help either. In theory, ambulance must come whenever called. But once a witness called the services and they told him that he should check first if the lying person was drunk or not because they had more urgent interventions waiting.
Indifference – either real or fake situations when people walk past and nobody cares.
That is why, people who take action in emergency make the headlines in the media and are sometimes rewarded by the police, authorities or schools if they are students or even pupils.
