Website Viral Viral Videos has this amazing clip of bystanders working in unison to lift up a burning car and pull out a person from underneath it. It's fantastic to see random strangers co-operating like this.
Too many times in the news, you hear stories of the bystander effect. A crime or tragedy occurs to someone in public, and everyone thinks that someone else will help. So in the end, no one does. But thankfully in this case, people did help.
After a motorcycle and car crash, some people noticed the biker was stuck under the burning wreckage. Without hesitation, people began to try and lift the car. More and more people came to help until the man was pulled to safety.
