New York Post Publishes Picture of Man Just Before He is Hit by Subway [VIDEO, POLL]

New York Post

The New York Post is being criticized by some people for publishing a photo of a man who was pushed into the path of an oncoming subway train. A freelance photographer, R. Umar Abbasi, who was working on an unrelated project, just happened to be standing on the subway platform when the whole ordeal happened. He captured two photos just before the train struck and killed Ki Suk Han, who was pushed onto the tracks by an unidentified person.

Most of the outrage comes from people asking why the photographer didn’t help Han and pull him from the tracks. I mean, after all, he did have time to pull out his camera. Abbasi says he would not have been strong enough to pull Han from the tracks. He actually claims he wasn’t actually taking pictures, but was instead trying to use the camera’s flash to warn the train’s conductor.

The other part of the story that is upsetting people is the fact that the New York Post published the pictures. While the pictures don’t show anything graphic, they are the last images of the man just before his death.

See the pictures included in this video of The New York Times story:

So what do you think? Was the NY Post wrong to publish these pictures?
