A poll has been released over young people's use of social media, after an epileptic woman spoke out about two strangers who refused to help her during a fit but were instead laughing and filming her on their mobile phones. Maggie O'Connor was walking her dog Dillion in Colchester, Essex, when she had a fit. She wrote on Facebook:
Today I had a seizure walking the dog at the priory. It was a bad one. I'm not going to lie I wet myself and bit my tongue, so had blood down my front. This I'm all used to. It's been a long time since I've felt upset by having a seizure in public. But today when I came round Dillion was standing over me which made me look up to see two lads laughing and filming me on their phones.
Even though I had woken up they only stopped filming because the dog started growling. One even took the time to do a close up of my face... these lads should be shamed for their behaviour.
