India shocked as dying woman, child ignored in busy tunnel for 40 minutes

India embarked on another bout of soul-searching yesterday over a shocking video showing passers-by ignoring a man's pleas after his wife and daughter were killed in a road accident. CCTV footage surfaced on Monday showing him cradling his son next to his overturned motorbike and calling for help from other motorists as his wife and eight-month-old daughter lay bloodied on the road.
