*Disturbing* Dozens Walk Past...

Dozens Walk Past Dying Hero...

Hugo Alfredo Tale-Yax was stabbed several times in the chest while saving a woman from a knife-wielding attacker. Then he bled to death while dozens of people walked by -- one stopping to snap a picture of the dying man with his cameraphone before leaving the scene.
Who the h$ll takes a picture?

I saw this the other day. I cannot understand how they could just walk by. It makes me so sad, especially since he was hurt trying to help someone else.

wow. That is incredibly sad. It makes me lose a little bit of faith in the human race

Devil's advocate here: I would bet that people walk past homeless people lying on the ground all the time, and don't call police/check on them/help them. They/we keep on walking. If a passerby saw him lying on the ground, didn't see blood, and hadn't seen him stabbed, maybe they thought he was asleep or drunk. The only thing out of place that I could see in the video was that he wasn't tucked away against a building like most other homeless people.

Having said that, I think it's terrible he was left for so long.

I'm guessing that the last person to walk past (who turned the victim over to check response) called emergency services. Basic first aid, which we should all be more aware of...

Irish, I agree. Prior to the advent of cell phones, I have walked by people on the sidewalk, especially when I took the bus late at night. Now, I think I would have used the cell phone to call 911, even if I didn't actively get involved.
