An old man, a parking lot, and indifference

Flickr user iirraa

Earlier this week and old man with a cane went for a tumble in the parking lot of a grocery store in Beaufort County, and The Island Packet's Ellis Harman was there.

Harman was taken aback, writing:

A woman in a Honda blaring some song by the boy band du jour swerved around him, which I guess is better than hitting him, but she didn’t stop. The dude getting out of his Ford pickup right next to where I was attempting to help the man to his feet didn’t stop. The tween with the iPhone didn’t even stop texting.

No one stopped to help him up.

Take a read of her post over here.

She didn't specify which Publix, but we're going to assume it was one of the ones in Bluffton.
