After having words, a homeless man pushed another man onto the tracks of a subway just before a train came into their station. The other man died of his injuries a few hours later. But the real controversy surrounding the death focuses on a freelance photographer's images snapped during the fray, from when the victim was first thrown onto the tracks to the attempted treatments after he was struck. The photographer dropped the photos at the New York Post offices and one was used as the December 4th cover, which also stirred a great deal of controversy. The whole situation is very sad, but I wondered what SKMBers thought of it all.
That's what I was thinking at first, too, but the article said he was taking pictures as he was running toward the man and hoping the flash from his camera would catch the attention of the train conductor.
