The NY Post ran a cover story and photo this morning about a man (Ki Suk Han) being pushed onto a NY subway track, and then being struck by a train, killing him. The photographer, working for the NY Post, claims he was unable to help the man, but the photo he took moments before the man’s death, has sparked a heated debate about the events that took place, and whether he could have done more.
From the Post article:
“Post freelance photographer R. Umar Abbasi — who had been waiting on the platform of the 49th Street station — ran toward the train, repeatedly firing off his flash to warn the operator.”
“I just started running, running, hoping that the driver could see my flash,” said Abbasi, whose camera captured chilling shots of Suk’s tragic fight for his life.”
