Kristina Donald was ignored by by-standers after suffering an intense epileptic seizure at a busy public bus stop.
Kristina told yesterday how she was left lying on a busy street for 15 minutes after suffering a severe epileptic seizure – because no one stopped to help her.
Kristina, 19, was at a bus stop on her way to work when she collapsed. When she came round, she had no idea where she was and pleaded with passers-by to help. Kristina said: “It was quite a big seizure as it was 15 minutes between me going under and being able to get up and leave the bus stop. “I was scared and confused when I woke. I was so weak I couldn’t stand up straight away and I was clinging to the railings.”
The World is a Dangerous Place, Not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.
It happened to me too.
My first seizure was on an Airline and the passenger I sat next to I was talking to ignored me after my seizure and wouldn’t even answer a simple Question What happened ? What we need is more awareness so people aren’t afraid to help others.
I am so very sorry that happened to you, and so disappointed in the people who did nothing. I too have epilepsy and have had some scary experiences. I get the feeling you are wise beyond your years and what didn’t kill you made you stronger.. although be it known I honestly hope and pray this never happens to you again sweet heart. My 20yr old daughter recently had a seizure for first time and so I know as a mom, it hurts me to hear your story as I can imagine my own daughter in same situation. a great big HUG to you and sincere well wishes your way!!! BTW, in such a vulnerable and confused state as I know you were, I am so proud and amazed at how strong you had to be and how you handled something that others would have totally just had a breakdown!
