A woman has come to the aid of an elderly man who she found lying in the street with a gash on his head in Surrey, British Columbia. A Facebook post, shared by Mariam Roya on March 8, shows a picture of 80-year-old Sid’s severe head injury and explains the heartbreaking situation in which she found him. According to the post, Roya helped Sid after witnessing multiple cars drive past him on the road, and brought him to Surrey Memorial Hospital for treatment. She says that she didn’t know if he was homeless or not, but his hands were so cold that she thought he’d been outside for at least 24 hours. She has since shared updates of Sid’s progress, and while her earlier posts criticize the way he was initially treated at the hospital she appears to now be happy with its services. Her latest update, shared on March 11, shows a video of Sid in his hospital bed. He thanks those sending their prayers his way, and discusses the lack of consideration shown by the people who ignored him on the street. According to Roya, the doctors at Surrey Memorial were hoping to place Sid in a care home for long-term treatment. The video had over 22,000 views at the time of writing.
