The Golden Hour Conundrum: Where Are India's Good Samaritans
How often do we see accident victims just lying by the side of the road with no one coming forward to help? There is something called the Golden Hour, the first hour after an accident. If a victim makes it to a hospital within the golden hour, the chances of survival are relatively high but in our country, which sees the highest road accident fatalities in the world, the importance of being a first responder to an accident is forgotten.
