This morning, local man Andrew Wood was on his way to the store when a mugger stole his wallet and proceeded to stab him five times, before running off. Wood was left there bleeding for several minutes, before someone finally stumbled across him.
That person was Dan Savage, founder of the It Gets Better campaign.
"It was absolutely shocking," Savage said. "There was so much blood everywhere, and he could barely speak. Naturally, I knew I had to do something."
Savage reportedly told Wood, “Don’t worry! It gets better! I know things seem tough now, but if you just hang in there, everything will be okay.” At no point did Savage call 911, or make any visible effort to assist him.
After ten minutes of encouraging words from Savage, the man bled out and died.
"It’s a shame he didn’t survive. I guess he just wasn’t trying hard enough," Savage said. "But he’s in a better place now, so everything is okay. It’s like I always say: it gets better. Sometimes that just means not being alive anymore."
Wood’s family are now seeking to sue Dan Savage for criminal negligence.
