The man who photographed the guy on the tracks, really can not be held at fault
I keep hearing people criticizing the man who took photos of a man on the train tracks, instead of helping him. First of all, I believe him when he says he barely knew what he was doing due to shock, and was trying to use the flash of his camera to get the driver's attention. Secondly, you never know what you will do in a situation such as this, jumping on the tracks might place two people in danger instead of one. And thirdly, and probably most important, other people were closer to this man, but no one helped because the man who pushed him was standing right by this man on the platform. He could have had a gun, a knife, etc. What if you tried to help this other man and got shot doing so? Who would tell your mother and father? Who would care for your children? Who would hold them at your funeral?
The man with the camera did the best he could, with limited time, scared, and in shock.
Now had it been a child on the tracks, I would probably have jumped down, and maybe been electrucuted on those tracks, but if I could grab that kid and throw that kid up onto the platform, I would most likely die trying to toss the kid up there, and I damned well know I would die, and would put my family through the worst hell ever. But in this case, where it was a grown man, where the guy who pushed him was standing guard over his "kill", when the train was soooooo close, I probably would have been frozen in horror, and done nothing but squeezed my eyes tightly closed and screamed with no other possible plan in mind.
At least this man held it together enough to try and get the guy's attention via his camera. That is better than I could have done.
If it had worked you all would call him a hero. Why not put blame where it belongs? On the asshole who pushed him in the first place?
