A man who was involved in a road traffic accident five years ago, which resulted in injury to a child, is now facing a moral dilemma. The accident occurred when a child ran across the expressway, and the man lost control of his motorcycle, colliding with the child. The child's parents, who were smoking weed at the time, sued the man but lost the case. Despite this, the man volunteered to pay for the child's initial surgery. Now, the child requires another surgical procedure, and the parents are demanding the man pay for it. The man is seeking feedback on whether he should pay for the additional surgery.
