5 Keys to the Controversy Over NY Post Photographer's Subway Death Photo:
2. He took a really good photo. Who knows why Abbasi’s first instinct after seeing Han on the subway tracks was to run down the platform, taking pictures to alert the subway driver with flashes? (Although according to him it worked. He told The New York Times that the driver told him he slowed down after seeing the camera’s flashes.)

They ultimately decided to run the photo, with the most disgusting headline imaginable: "DOOMED! Pushed on the subway track, this man is about to die." It seems impossible to come up with a more insensitive headline than that.
