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.

Remember when Princess Di and her bodyguards got into a car accident and laid there dying while people took pictures?

There should be a law about snapping pictures of the situation. That is what is sickening about the whole thing.

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.

the photographer prob didnt help him bc he knew if he got a picture of the man ...that ppl would be willing to buy it.... so out of greed he let an innocent man die....so very sad!! 

people do unbeliveable  things to make money....so sad..... :(

He would've been endangering his life by giving the guy a hand?

I thought I remembered something from a few years ago where someone basically just watched another person die when they could've helped... I thought they got in trouble for it. Maybe just sued. IDK...

I think taking pictures of the situation is just utterly disgusting.

Duty to aid. There are several categories where yes there is a duty...but you have to have been the one to put them in their situation in the first place. The man who shoved him onto the tracks had the duty to aid, not bystanders.
