Today I witnessed the worst of the Filipino when I watched a video liked by a friend on facebook.
It shows a filipino man on a train track cut in two at the thighs, his legs laying to the side. Surely people are killed in the Philippines by carelessly crossing trainlines regularly but this man was still alive. Around him a crowd of filipinos had formed maybe 50-100 to watch and gawk and laugh at the man as he tried to stand helplessly on the ground. Not one Filipino tried to remove the man from the tracks, stem the bleeding of his severed stumps, or even hold his hand and offer him comfort. Instead he twiched helplessly as the multitudes of amused and dumbfounded faces staring at him. I couldnt bear to complete the video but here is a screenshot from a couple of minutes in. WARNING, not for the faint hearted.
