A photographer for The New York Post just happened to be waiting for a train at the 49th Street station platform when 49-year-old Ki Suk Han, a married father of one, was pushed onto the tracks by a mystery assailant. The photographer managed to snap two pictures before the man was run over by the train, sustaining critical injuries before being pronounced dead at Roosevelt Hospital.
One of the photos was on the front page of Tuesday morning’s New York Post, and New Yorkers are wondering why pictures were taken in lieu of offering actual help to Han himself. Abassi says he was using his camera’s flash to warn the conductor. The Post is saying Abassi wasn’t strong enough to lift Han up anyway. But the real question seems to be whether The Post had any business turning the photos into a cover story.
What do you think?
