The recent death of a two-year-old girl in a road traffic accident in Waterford was heart-rending. I cannot begin to imagine the grief of her family.
It is deplorable that members of the public began capturing videos and images of the accident with their phones. Why anyone would stoop to this morbid behaviour is beyond my comprehension.
Yet it has become so widespread that Waterford Fire Services appealed to the public on Facebook to let them get on with their work and show respect and dignity to those involved in accidents. Curiosity is normal; capturing images of dying, injured and distraught victims is not.
