Postman who left woman, 72, with cracked head should be SACKED

Postman who left woman, 72, with cracked head should be SACKED

Last week and the little town of Bainsford near Falkirk. A doorbell camera captured our timeless drama. It featured Patricia Stewart, 72, widow and grandmother, who unwittingly played the part of traveller on the road to Jericho. A Royal Mail postman was self-cast as heartless passer-by.

Patricia, who has osteoporosis, had just fallen heavily in the deep snow outside her front door. She'd cracked her head on a stone step and was unable to get up.

Fortunately - so she thought - the postie arrived moments later.

Rescue! Freezing Patricia could barely speak, just about managing to groan: "Aarghhh!"

A motion-activated doorbell cam on the house next door recorded what happened next.

The postie - standing directly above Patricia and staring down dispassionately at her - says: "Nah... can't help you, pal. I'm knackered."

Patricia: "Uhh?"

Postie: "Absolutely knackered... I've been out since (inaudible) this morning, in this weather..."

Patricia (faintly): "Oh... OK..."

Telling her to put her slippers on, the postie saunters away, leaving Patricia prostrate in the snow behind him. It's unbelievable.

He actually stops and glances back at her in complete disinterest - he could be looking at a stray cat or even a discarded bag of rubbish - before continuing his round. He didn't even raise the alarm with neighbours.

The well of human insensitivity can run deep. In this horrible man's case, it's seemingly bottomless.

The video is widely available online. If you view it, prepare to be viscerally disturbed. Patricia - who was rescued 20 minutes later by her Good Samaritan, Hermes delivery driver Karolina Domska, 22 - says she's still in shock: not from the fall, but the postman's cold-blooded in

difference. "I just couldn't believe he walked away and left me."

Royal Mail have apologised personally to Patricia and have named the postman as

51-year-old Thomas McCafferty >right >

He's been suspended pending an enquiry.

Can he be sacked? He should but probably won't be. It was more a moral crime than a legal one. McCafferty has already been hung, drawn and quartered online.

Deservedly, too.


John Bellamy Comments: What is wrong with this asshole that his decent humanity is so shot to pieces that he shows absolutely no care for anyone but himself and then, DISGRACEFULLY - he has the fucking balls NOT to apologise as he sees nothing wrong in his actions.
Would he do the same if it was his Mother on the ground ? DISPICABLE. ABSOLUTELY DISPICABLE.
Now, he looks a nice kind and thoughtful man and clearly something was going on for him that day that turned a probably nice man into a thoughtless cunt. This lockdown is affecting us all in different ways and claiming otherwise is naive and dumb - as we are all affected and we all will find ourselves saying and doing things we would not normally say and do and we need to make allowances for others, we really do - but when there is an old lady laying in the snow clearly in distress, no human being, and I don't care who you are, walks off and offer no help at all, not even to simply notify the neighbours of a simple call to 999. Whatever this man thought would be acceptable behaviour in the ciircumstances - he found himself in a shit load of trouble from thousands on social media who attacked him visciously for his lack of care towards a fellow human being.
This he brought on himself and ESPECIALLY as he continues to refuse to apologise - THAT - IS A BIG MISTAKE as it shows he is an asshole, he is an uncaring cunt and while I try and find nice things in everyone, his refusal to apologise says a great deal and he really is an uncaring cunt if that's his way forward.
------------------------------------------ I sincerely hope Patricia Stewart has made a full recovery and we send her our best wishes. --------------------------------------------- HOME PAGE
