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.
