A netizen shared how he took the last train and saw a drunk girl vomiting at the MRT station and wondered if he should help her.
Here is the story:”
I usually take the late train on friday nights. Just so happened that tonight I caught the last train at Dover MRT.
As I walk toward the end of the train I notice this girl enter at the same station as well. Something looked off about her. She seemed like she was in a daze.
As she got in, she just stood next to the door and leaned her head against the wall. Something was wrong, this girl was clearly drunk, wasted would probably the correct term.
As the train set off I noticed she had a little trouble maintaining her balance but did not sit although most seats around her were unoccupied.
As we approach Clementi MRT, her discomfort seemed even more obvious. The doors opened and she seemed to be even more uncomfortable.
Suddenly, she bolts out into the station, leans against the wall and merlion….
As I watched I wondered if I could help her. Should I even help her ? What could I have done? Did she even need any help? She clearly seemed to be having a tough time keeping her wits about herself. Could she even get home in that state? Could I call someone? Was she safe? Could I give her something to help? I did not have any water or tissue on me.
Even if I were to ask her if she was ok would she just ask me to mind my own business? What if she puked on me instead? Would she feel threaten and unsafe if a burly guy were to ask she was ok in that state?
Not sure what I could do but feeling a need to help to do something, I sat there contemplating and watching the scene unfold.
Before I could do anything, my decision was made for me as the train doors closed and the last train for the day left the station.
To the girl who got off the last train at Clementi from Dover. I genuinely hope that you are ok and you managed to get home safe and sound.
I’m really not sure what I could have done to help even with hindsight, but I genuinely hope you are ok.
What would you have done? Would you help? How would you help? Is this a legal nightmare waiting to happen? How would you feel in that condition if a burly male stranger approached you to offer help in that state? Would really appreciate some advise as I am feeling abit guilty.
Still feel I could do something to help but just not sure what…”
Editor’s note: No point asking one thousand and one questions online after you have already decided not to help her.
