When Ki Suk Han was pushed onto NYC subway tracks by Naeem Davis and killed by an oncoming train, NY Post photographer R. Umar Abbasi was there to snap the picture.
Many have questioned WHY Mr. Abbasi didn't attempt to save the man, especially since he seemed to have time to take out his camera, adjust all technicalities, point, aim and shoot, resulting in a clear image of the vicitim seconds before the train hit.
Well, the photographer decided to defend himself Thursday during a CNN interview with Anderson Cooper…
And the man claims he was trying to help the man by using his camera flash as a warning to the train conductor!
Watch a rather strange, extremely detailed interview (above).
While we would love to believe Mr. Abbasi's explanation, we can't help but feel he is simply trying to save face in a situation where, if he had acted quickly, he may have been able to save someone's life.
But what's done is done and only the people involved will ever really know exactly what happened!
