When a man was pushed onto the subway tracks, instead of helping the man ( who was trying to climb out) as a train approached a new York post photographer snapped pictures instead of grabbing his arm and pulling him out.
The man died when the train hit him. The post then put that picture on the front page.

The photographer says he took the pictures in the hopes the driver would stop.

Quoting briansmommy2010:

Whether or not he helped isn't the issue. It's the fact that he stood around taking pictures, which ended up on the front page of the newspaper (and probably lined his pockets quite a bit). How is it acceptable that this photographer profited off another man's death?

Quoting LStambaugh:

 From what I read, the whole thing happened so quickly that no witnesses were able to help him in time.  Lets not forget that the photographer was not the one who PUSHED this poor man onto the tracks.  I think its sad that so much blame has been placed on him for the death of the victim.

Quoting Diamepphyre:

 Yeah, roight.  He saw an opportunity to get a picture that he could maybe sell to the rags, and was more concerned about his pocketbook than the life of another human being.  Pathetic.

Quoting Suzukigirl710:

The photographer stated that the reason he was taking the pictures was so that the train driver would see his flash and stop....yea....right.  I will take the Golden Gate Bridge for a dollar please!  If he would have only grabbed his arm, the guy would most likely be alive today.  So sad.

I saw this on the news It's so terrible I would have helped him. Even if I was risking my own life. I just couldn't have lived with myself if I didn't try.
