Let's just agree to disagree. Some of us believe someone could have helped. Others believe it would be foolish to help.
No one said throw yourself in front of the train to help him. Two people could have simply grabbed his hand and pulled in less time than 22 seconds.
Maybe not. Perhaps 22 seconds is too little time to grab a hand a pull. Who knows?
Some people believe that all of the unknown factors make it perfectly acceptable to allow someone to die. I believe that many people in everyday life across the world help others in situations very similar to this. How was this situation any different?
I guess that "special someone" - that "hero" - wasn't in the subway that day. That sucks for the victim, especially when the victim was standing up to a thug for harrassing fellow pedestrians. No one returned the favor in his time of need.
We just disagree. That's all.
