Have your say
I think a lot of people need to stop making assumptions about the "facts" and actually remember the fact that someone was seriously injured here. Regardless of what people do for a living this was someone who was going about her business and doing what she was instructed to do, if at any point she thought her safety was at risk I am sure she wouldn't have put herself in that position. This was a terrible accident and thoughtless comments will not aid in her recovery. Perhaps those who think they know the "actual facts" should think about their source before making heartless comments.
Anonymous how rude are you ! Because he's commented in the day time he is jobless??? And this has to do with anything or you for that matter!! He was saying his opinion and actual true facts so get down of your high horse!!! I'm posting this on my break just incase I get accused of being jobless!!
