Filed under: TV NewsR.I.P.Media MinuteAnderson CooperSad Sad

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).

Grisly Subway Death: Could New York Post's Photographer Have Rescued The Victim?

Filed under: R.I.P.YOU Decide!Sad SadNew York

new york post subway death doomed

This is just all around horrible!! We're still heated up about it!

As we've previously discussed… during a heated altercation between two men near a NYC subway track, one of the men was PUSHED over the rails and killed by the oncoming train.

New York Post photographer R. Umar Abbasi was nearby when he heard commotion and began snapping photos of the horrifying ordeal.

Tragically, the victim died and the photo that was taken seconds before his death was published on the front page of the newspaper.

Now the photographer and the New York Post are in hot water. Many argue why couldn't the photographer taken action to save the man if he had enough time to capture the image.

But Abbasi claims the man was doomed and there was simply nothing he could do other than his job with the timing of the incident.

Watch the video (below) to get more deets and hear what others have to say and then tell us what U think …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
