I did call 911 but only after I got off in my neighborhood. And I had to explain that yes, I didn't know her and yes, I was no longer in the vicinity but yes, she wasn't moving and even if she wasn't injured she was extremely vulnerable both to traffic and people who might want to harm her. Because the South Bronx is tough enough on a good night, but on a holiday we people want to cause trouble? Yeah.
The weird thing is, I feel more guilty than if I'd not called it in. Maybe because I had to reconize I really should have done more - walking away completely might have given me an out-of-sight-out-of-mind absolution? I don't kow. I did more than anyone else who saw her, but it still feels like I fell short, bigly.
Thank goodness for police and EMS, though!
