    New York Post Publishes Horrifying Cover Of Man About To Die On Subway Tracks

    The New York Post ran a cover this morning of a man seconds before he was hit by a subway. Many are outraged that nothing was done to help him.

    As the cover circulated, many on the internet demanded to know why nothing was done to help the man.

    The photographer who sold the photo to The Post explains why he took the photo:

    Post freelance photographer R. Umar Abbasi — who had been waiting on the platform of the 49th Street station — ran toward the train, repeatedly firing off his flash to warn the operator.

    “I just started running, running, hoping that the driver could see my flash,” said Abbasi, whose camera captured chilling shots of Suk’s tragic fight for his life.
