Dying alone in the world's most populous city

Dying alone in the world's most populous cityThe stench of flesh rotting on a sultry day fills the air as cleaner Hidemitsu Ohshima steps into a tiny Tokyo apartment where a dead man lay decomposing for three weeks. The man, believed to be in his 50s, died alone in a city he shared with tens of millions of other people but no one noticed, making him the latest victim of “Kodokushi” or “dying alone” — a growing trend in ageing Japan. Kodokushi is a growing problem in Japan, where 27.7 percent of the population is aged over 65 and many people are giving up trying to find partners in middle age, opting instead for a solitary existence.

Wisconsin’s Green Bay Police Department (GBPD) officer Darryl Robinson took the boy out on his special day when he was left alone. The kind-hearted officer treated the boy to a meal at McDonald’s and took him for a ride in his police car. GBPD posted on Facebook: “The parent is incarcerated and there were no other known family contacts. “Officer Robinson responded to a local elementary school for a child that was not picked up at the end of the school day,” the post said. “Thanks to the owners of our local McDonald's, we were given free cheeseburger coupons to hand out in certain situations. Officer Robinson took the child for a meal at McDonald's and a ride around in the police car for his birthday.” They added the family was eventually located and the child was dropped off. The department added: “Thank you to Officer Robinson for taking some extra time to celebrate the child's birthday; we are proud to have him as part of the GBPD team!” His actions were praised online, with one posting: “What a fine officer. No one is more committed to the community than Officer Darryl Robinson. That little boy will remember that for the rest of his life.” Another wrote: “Thank you Officer Robinson for treating that young boy like a human being even though his parents are having a hard time right now.” Police officer stuns shoplifter with amazing act outside court
