    I was shocked to see how this girl was handled after she fell. She was pulled in all directions with good intention ofcourse. But if she had a neck or spine injury the consequences would have been devastating. She could have been paralysed. In developed countries, it is illegal to move an accident victim for this very reason.

    When a girl climb a tree, there should be safety measures.

    Poor girl. Why she has to pluck coconut when you have coconut milk powder.
