Queens father fatally crushed by train after deranged man flings him onto Midtown subway tracks - NYPOST.com

       A 58 year old Queens man name Kim Suk Han was crushed by the Q train yesterday and a photographer caught the man's final seconds alive trying to struggle back on the platform after another deranged straphanger had pushed him on the tracks.
  
       You wonder why more people weren't scurrying to trackside to help lift the man, but its hard to know exactly how it played out. The photographer says he was using his camera flash to alert the train.  It's a creepy scene.

Where is OSHA when you need them? If industry had even one fatality you would see Obama and the democrats passing a new law with new safety guards required and EMO switches every 10 feet. Yet these subways kill someone every time you turn around and nothing changes?

Oh well...I am sure this crazy guy is not like the crazy batman guy and the crazy Gabby guy and the crazy cape Vincent guy. I mean after all, those guys should have been taken off the street years ago. But it just wouldn't be fair to mandate anything on schizophrenic people...and you want to be "fair" don't ya?

How about, "Put the camera down and save his life?"

the photographer claimed he was running at the victim to save him,firing the camera and flash to alert the train..that is a pretty steady,level,well focussed photo for his unsuccessful heroic act,dontcha think?

The photographer should be charred for neglect to help.

Maybe that all what was need it was that second to reach out and give the man a hand.
Instead he used this second for shooting a picture.

I have to say again: Thats wrong with society. Instead of trying to help and show some empathy, every stupid shoots around with a camera phone

Nobody knows how far away the photographer was maybe he couldn't make it in time to save him, where were the other people in the subway? There are usually a lot of them around! Maybe they ran away for fear that crazy idiot would throw them on the tracks too!?! Everyone's a critic, but you don't know what you would do in a situation like that, how fast was the train going? I would be scared it would pull me onto the track too, maybe there should be foot holds down there for times like this. It could have been somebody just loosing their balance and falling own there, too!

Sorry, for my spelling mistakes.

I also meant "charged"

you can see a flash is used by the lit area in the foreground,and flashes don't extend out very far unless they are super duper flashes..nope,looks like this guy was taking his time to frame a good picture.ironically when i went to type in the password to post here,the letter portion was "tohold"..
