A video of a man standing in the way of four-lane oncoming traffic was reported to be suicidal. However, two ladies taking videos of the entire incident along Upper Cross Street seemed to find humour in the incident.
The video, making its way round social media earlier today, showed a man standing in the second lane, with a bag between his feet. While his intentions were unclear from the video, many netizens commented that he was trying to commit suicide by placing himself in front of oncoming traffic. Others also said that the video was an old one that seemed to be circulating again.
Two ladies who would have had to be filming the incident from an overhead bridge nearby seemed to be rather tickled by the man and could be heard laughing and chattering amongst themselves in the background of the video.
Towards the end of the video, the man could be seen wildly gesturing at passers-by standing on the side of the busy street. Throughout the duration of the video, no one stopped to help the man, or to call the authorities. Cars in the area successfully avoided the man.
In the comments, many netizens speculated and joked about the man as well./TISG
