Cythraul: The photographer, R. Umar Abbasi, snapped at least two photos of Han before he was run over by the downtown Q train.

I - I can't really put into words how I feel about this.


Well, I think it's pretty clear that Han should have shot first.

I am shocked that the New York Post, owned by Rupert Murdoch, has demonstrated a lack of ethics or even simple human decency, but instead chose to exploit a person's death.

The photographer looks to be about as far away from him as the train was. Unless there a phone booth nearby where he could have switched out of his disguise as a mild-mannered reporter and swooped in to save the day, what's he gonna do?

Abbasi claims that he was using his camera's flash to warn the train's conductor, possibly suggesting that the photos were incidental.

That's why he got both the train and the victim perfectly in the shot!

Lollipop165: CSS: Just this Saturday I was on 57th St and 7th Avenue at around 1am.

There was a body. I mean, this guy was stone cold, vomit over his mouth, and his eyes were open and he wasn't blinking. He wasn't responsive and I didn't notice any signs of breathing. A crowd of kids had crowded around him to "see the dead body". Right across from a Halal truck. We asked the Halal truck how long he had been there and they said "oh I dunno... 15 minutes or so?"

Not ONE person had called 911.

My husband had his phone on him and I made him call 911. We waited for about 5 more minutes for the cops to come. Again, this guy isn't blinking, and from what I could tell wasn't breathing.

Right then, one of the kids literally KICKS the dead guy. No joke the "dead guy" jumps up and is awake. He's obviously on drugs or something, but I had NEVER in my life been so sure this guy was dead, and to see him wake up was incredibly shocking. He was a kid, well dressed, probably in his 20's. On the floor he looked like a 40-something year old bum.

So I'm waiting for the ambulance with him and I buy him a water. Yeah, the farking Halal guys charged me farking $3 for a gawddamn bottle of water. I told the guys, wtf? I'm helping YOU guys out here moving the dead guy!

But truly, I couldn't get over the fact that not one person in Midtown tried to help this guy. I know the Kitty Genovese case isn't factual, but I couldn't help making the comparison.


To the halal guy, it probably looked like it was just another junkie nodding off in front of his cart after a hot dose. He probably doesn't like junkies shooting up in front of his cart, and was upset that you were encouraging him with water.

Of course, it could have been a lot of things. Maybe the guy was having a stroke. Maybe he we going into a diabetic shock. Maybe he fell and hit his head. I really have no idea.

// Anyhow, everyone knows you shouldn't kick a dead body. That's barbaric. You're supposed to poke them with a stick.
/// Maybe they don't have sticks in Manhattan.
//// Someone should start a charity. For only 50 cents a day, less than a cup of coffee, you can buy one poor Manhattan street urchin a body pokin' stick.

jshine: From what I've seen (though not in NYC), subway platforms usually overhang a lot and have the 3rd-rail moved to the opposite side specifically so that if someone falls onto the tracks, he/she can roll under the platform and have enough clearance to avoid being hit by the train. If the guy had rolled under the platform rather than trying to crawl out right away, he might have lived -- though maybe not, I don't know how those platforms are designed.


What you are supposed to do is run in the opposite direction of the train. If you don't have time to do that, its lay in the troth between the tracks.

Last I saw the numbers, the average number of people KILLED by the subway is a little more than one a week, and a conductor has around even odds of hitting someone in their career. Not that I have a problem with the subway, but I always chuckle at the thought that if it was a ride in an amusement park, there is no way it would be allowed to operate.
