I posted the above article, this morning whilst at work. Travelling home I use a (busy at the time) four lane main road near a school, the pupils use bus stops either side of the busy road just before/after a roundabout. Today I witnessed a very distressing thing. I was travelling home just past kicking out time for the school, there were pupils at the bus stops and cars waiting at the bus stops pull-ins to pick up their children. The traffic being heavy meant I was slowly moving towards the roundabout. On the opposite side bus stop I could see in the corner of my eye, a commotion. I looked across to see a young pupil (around 15) lying on the ground. A person in one of the waiting cars rushed over to him and rolled him on his side. The boys eyes were open but blank. It reminded me of the collapse of the footballer Erikson in the Euros. I cannot say for sure what happened to the young man, all I know is what I could see. My wife asked did he just faint or did he have a fit? Unfortunately from his eyes I think it was more serious.

I hope in my heart he is ok.

Heart attacks at 15 are perfectly normal.

 

I had many of them when I was a teenager.

 

I grew out of them as I matured. 🤠
