Why did no one help him? Outrage as commuters stand back while man desperately tries to escape path of New York subway train as suspect admits to pushing father on tracks


Quote

  • Suspect Naeem Davis, 30, admits to pushing 58-year-old Ki Suk Han onto subway tracks at 49th Street in Manhattan
  • Han, a father of one, killed by oncoming Q train as he tried to pull himself up from tracks
  • Davis was arrested one block from subway station in nearby Times Square
  • New York Post freelance photographer took pictures of grisly moments before Han was fatally struck
  • Paper has been blasted for poor taste in publishing Han's last moments

I remember a case back in the 70's I believe where a man fell into a river in winter time... A TV film crew happened to be in the area and simply stood by and filmed while the man drowned... They made no attempt to rescue him at all - simply commenting on how terrible it was - "Film at 11:00!"...

They were prosecuted for manslaughter...

Not sure in the case above if the photographer could have done anything with the train that close - but he could have at least tried!  And the paper was absolutely "in poor taste" for printing that picture...

Also, shame on the others who stood by not wanting to get involved...

I saw this on FB today, made me sick!  Is the media really that more important than life? I believe that the person or people that took the picture should be charge with some sort neglect. If one can make a citizens arrest one should be even more obligated to at least attempt to save a life. Shame on the NY post.

Most reporters think that their reportage is more important than human beings. Shame on them :td:

τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

This has horrified the city .He scrambled for one full minute to get up ,and no one would help him .
No one should look at the footage in my opinion .Image if you were this man's child,parent ,and its all over the news.
They got the guy .
.......
So senseless .

Miss me?

More here -

A New York Post photographer has hit back against critics over pictures he took of a man moments from death on a subway track.

Freelancer R Umar Abbasi said in a media interview that he had used his camera flash to alert the train driver, rather than to snap photos.

The tabloid's front-page story, headlined This Man Is About To Die, has triggered fierce ethical debate.

If that were true,he wouldn't have sold the photo to every media agency going,and none of us would be looking at it right now.
And unless it was a very wide shot ,the man in line of fire,is on a diffferent trajectory than where the conductor is .
The train would be in the photo ,not the man on the tracks .I haven't looked at it ,so I cannot say for sure ,but that sounds like  a lousy lie .

A woman video taped it . They stood there ,immortilizing it ,instead of helping the guy .

*sags* I really cannot look at this stuff....anymore.
I looked ,the photo looks like its focused on the center of the image ,to get the man and train ,in perfect perspective .He's a liar and a cretin . He's also a tabloid photog .Those guys are scum .

How the heck is a camera flash supposed to alert the driver that there is a person on the track?... This photographer is either a liar or a moron...

Besides... The guy was on the tracks for a full minute before the train got there.. Plenty of time to lend a helping hand - if he had wanted to...

Exactly what I was thinking. If you ask me, the photographer's not telling the whole truth.

If I was in the conductor's shoes, I wouldn't pick up on a camera's flash being used as an alert. Not to mention, it's not like we can just stop the freaking train. And this man had a full minute to help the guy?

It is hardly fair to screech at the photographer for not helping as the bystanders too were guilty of the same.

It's fair to be angry at all of them. They're all guilty. I think we're on the same page.

People are so disconnected from each other. Total lack of empathy exhibited here. None of these people could -- or even tried to -- put themselves in his shoes, or his mother's, wife's, friend's, child's shoes.

They stood there and watched a man die because they couldn't see him as a person. He was "news" not one of them. His death was "an event," not pain and fear and a desperate struggle of someone they cared about, or could care about.

This is disgusting. Sickening.

And instead of throwing up our hands in despair and hating the human race, we should all strive to love it more, to take the time to see the people rushing past as just like us in some way... at least enough to extend a hand to someone in such basic need.

The photographer should be blacklisted, but he'll probably make money on it instead.

Embrace the impossible.
