Horrible! Man Pushed Onto Subway Tracks Is Refused Help, NY Commuters Watch Him Die

What an absolute shame.  A man was cruelly pushed onto the subway tracks yesterday afternoon in New York City.  As he struggled to get back onto the platform eighteen commuters just stood and watched until a subway train hit and killed him.  There was enough time to take pictures of the terrified man, but apparently not enough to grow compassion and a spine to pull him out.

According to The Daily Mail,

A passenger who witnessed a man being crushed by a subway train today spoke of his anger at the failure of 18 people on the platform to save him – including the photographer who had time to take chilling pictures of his final moments.

Patrick Gomez, who admitted that he also ‘froze’ at the scene, said it was a ‘real shame’ that no-one had the courage to ‘step up’ and attempt to rescue Ki Suk Han, 58, after he was pushed onto the line at the New York subway station yesterday afternoon.

Gomez, 37, said: ‘People who were on the platform could have pulled him up but they didn’t have the courage. They just didn’t react like that.’

And he reserved his strongest criticism for photographer R. Umar Abbasi, who shot the chilling photograph of Mr Han watching as the subway train barreled towards him in the final moments.

The image appeared on the front page of the New York Post this morning with the headline ‘Doomed’. The 58-year-old can be seen looking at the train with his arms outstretched he tries to heave himself out of its path.

Mr Gomez spoke for millions who expressed their outrage today at the commuters on the Times Square platform who witnessed the man being pushed in front of the train but did not try to pull him to safety.

    Typical of New Yorkers. Nothing new here.

    We are effed.

    A deranged human pushed Ki Suk Han onto the subway tracks and he was subsequently killed by a train.

    Jovan Belcher shot and killed Kasandra Perkins.

    Both actions, by humans, resulted in the death of another person.

    Availability of handguns was blamed for the death of Ms. Perkins, according to Bob Costas.

    Will Bob Costas now blame the train for Mr. Han’s death?

    No one can predict how they would act in an emergency. Will you step up and help, will you freeze as your brain tries to process what is happening, will you run away in fear of the ugly thing you see? No one can predict what happens next.

    Think: a car rolls over on a man. Four men try to lift the car, four men stand and watch, one takes a photo, one calls 911.

    Who said anything about the race of anybody involved in this incident?

    Is this story any different than the radical islamists beheading human beings? Not really. We now have a culture that has no compassion, care, or concern for their fellow citizens. Thank you very much for those that agreed to feed their kids violent video games, Hollywood for their quest for the most violent and bloody movies, and the parents that have had no compunction to instill good moral values, and a respect for human life in their children. I’m not a bit surprised at the New Yorkers standing by and doing absolutely nothing, it’s what the liberal culture has brough us. We are now no better than the radical islamists.

    I take the subway daily here in Chicago, I see from the photo that there is a center divider just like in my city, why didn’t the man run to the divider instead of trying to pull himself onto the platform? we’ll never know the answer. I am so sorry for this man and his family.

    R. Ummar Abassi. Yeah, he’s an old Yankee, I’m sure.

    Shame on you

    In the America of today this doesn’t surprise me one lick. The only thing that mystifies me is that there isn’t some moron somewhere posting a video (to Hip-Hop world or whatever the hell it is) and laughing as this poor soul is killed.

    A whole lot more outrage came from the White House over aspiring thug Treyvon Martin than there will over this. After all, this man was an Asian, not black.

    No, no, Nancy, you can bet that not one f***ing word of solace will come from Odumbo to the grieving relatives of the victim.

    Ever hear of Kitty Genovese? Shame on you.

  • Fu#k Obama

    And how much did the photographer make for selling his photo, his motivation perhaps?

  • Joe Blow

    Don’t you just love New York! Unfortunately it isn’t just New York but it’s becoming that way all over the United States.

  • Annoyed In Illinois

    Interersting: Kitty Genovese was killed by a black and so was this man on the subway but nary a mention in the lamestream press. All we read is of the pathetic onlookers, not the feral savages who commit these horrible crimes.

    Where’s Bob Costas when we need him? Whoops, again a black perp.

    It’s an Obama world. Yeah, I said it.

  • zed

    I thank God every day I moved out of that cesspool 25 years ago.

    I’m sorry ghost, my meaning was I was not surprised at the non-response by yankees, and as far as I am concerned it is typical of them when someone is in trouble.

    That poor man could have been saved if someone had cared just a little. But they didn’t, and he wasn’t.
