I think I would be in too much shock to go and rescue the man honestly.

as a photographer, i imagine you're used to distancing yourself from events
like you're not there, you're an observer
kinda like ppl who film crazy stuff on tv when you know the person is going to hurt themselves but you can't interfere or like videographers in war zones

now he is right--there were a lot of other people who could have helped but he's the only person who has profited from the tragedy. that is why everyone is giving him a side eye

this is something in psychology right?
it's best if there is only one person there when you're in danger bc if there are a lot of other people, no one does anything bc they think others will...which is exactly what he is doing.
human beings are f-ed up. i tell ya

Yes I forget the name of the theory but if more than one person is around people will overcome their cognitive dissonance and react as a "team" which says don't help. It is better if only one person witnesses an event you are way more likely to get out alive.
The photographer is a sh!t person to sell the pictures. This reminds me of that photographer who took a picture of that little boy that was so frail and a vulture was waiting for him to die.
This has happened before when I first moved to NY a 16 yo girl fell on the metro-north train tracks after having a seizure. She was on their for 4 minutes before being ran over and no one did anything either.

I wouldn't have rescued him, but I sure as hell wouldn't have been taking pics either.

Bystander effect...you're also not supposed to scream for help, it'll scare people off. You scream "Fire!" instead.
