our society is doomed. this is just disgraceful.

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.

Yea and if you look at the people in the background. A few are also taking video or pictures with their phones.


Quoting Chris030406:

He was a freelance photog.

This has been quite to topic in photog circle! But yeah, we're doomed!

its sad and terrible. I lived in NYC many years and took the subway uncountable times. Sad what happened to him and to think that it could have been me and no one would have helped. There are a lot of bad people out there. Unfortunately there are many people like "me? why should I help?".

What a stupid thing to ask.

Did she say she would take a picture instead?

No, she said she would scream for help.

Would you take pictures instead?

This. I'm not strong and chances of me falling in are too great. I'd scream for help though.



So sad.



Quoting danie24:

I'm sorry but I wouldn't help him out.



I'd be too afriad he'd accidentally pull me in with him.

I just saw him on the news. He looks like he has no soul.

I don't know how far away the subway train was from the platform but those trains come fast. I'm not sure if there was enough time to pull him up. The conductor went into shock and was taken away by paramedics.

Quoting Anonymous:

I would be scared. But the man who pushed him fled after he pushed him. The two were fighting beforefore he was pushed in.




Quoting owl0210:

The photo is just horrific. I take the train to work and can't imagine seeing someone pushed. My first instinct would probably be to run for fear of being pushed by a madman. I think when something so horrific happens people go into shock. It is sad that nobody came to his aid.

Quoting amandae21:

Isn't there some sort of law about stuff like this?

I can't imagine there is a law out there saying you have to help someone by putting your own life at risk.
