I read the story last night on FR, before it got pulled for some stupid comments about the title of the article.

The photo dude did try. He and the others were at a distance from the melee. And after it happened, he started flashing the oncoming train and others ran toward the victim. They just didn't make it in time.

So, what ya gonna do if a person who has been drinking and a mental patient fight in front of a oncoming train?

Go help the victim, while having the potential of being pulled into the train.

It is easy to be brave from a distance.

Apparently the FAMILY of the victim claimed he was drunk! Turning out to be more to this story. Probably everyone started edging away from the two of them.

Maybe so. I'm pretty far away, but this strikes me as notable: "there were disquieting reports that none of the 18 bystanders bothered to help Han. Yet various witnesses said he was on the tracks for a minute or more, scrambling to pull himself onto the platform." At least the photographer got a well framed and clear shot to sell while he was running to aid the poor man.
