Young people...are great!
I was on a bus in central London today when there was a thud. It was obviously the sound of someone falling down the stairs. Turns out to be a very drunk older guy.
But who were the first people to rush to help? A teenage couple canoodling on the backseat downstairs! Other people did offer help - which was good to see (and left me relieved that I didn't need to show my lack of first-aid skills - I real must book on a course!). But the teenagers (I'm guessing 16/17ish) were great - the girl was talking about a first aid course she'd done, she helped the bloke and sorted him out, liased with the driver with no fear or sense of self-preservation.
So there you are - young people are great!
