While most pedestrians only step onto the road when they intend to cross, the person did not move an inch, even as the vehicle drove past.

However, there’s always the possibility that the visual may have been distorted due to the camera angle.

If that’s the case, they shared their hope that the person will receive the help they need.

Hope they’d be able to seek treatment if they’re unwell

Seeing a white figure standing in the middle of the road at night is probably one of the last things that a driver would want to come across.

However, in cases like this one, the person’s safety is also of concern as not all vehicles may slow down to avoid colliding with them.

We hope the person managed to get to safety, and if they are indeed in need of help, that they’ll get some soon too.
