Video: Man dies during prayers…
A Moroccan man collapsed and died while praying at a mosque in the North African Arab country, but only two of hundreds of worshippers rushed to him.
A YouTube film published in local newspapers showed the man was standing in the middle of a large crowd of Muslims gathering for dawn prayers inside the mosque in the Western port of Casablanca when he dropped dead.
A man standing next to him rushed for his rescue while all the other worshippers ignored the incident and continued their prayers. Another man later ended his prayers and joined the other, but the man was already dead.
Newspapers in Morocco said viewers of the film expressed their anger at the passive reaction of the other worshippers and one said: “What is more important to continue their prayers or try to save the man’s life?”
