He was dead ass wrong for that.
He might have or might have not been able to save the man.
I understand the fact that people sometimes freeze up when things like that happen. I might have frozen up out of complete shock as well if I were in a situation similar. I cannot say how I would have reacted..
But the photographer did not freeze up out of shock.
He took pictures instead.
Then he sold them to profit off of them.
So he could not think quick enough to attempt to save the man, but he could think quick enough to snap a few photos of this man in his final seconds of life.
He could have kept them to himself or even like someone else suggested in this thread, gave them to police.
I hope he never ends up in a situation to where he has to depend on the kindness of strangers to help save his life. Someone might just have his same train of thought and decide it was not worth the effort to try to save him and just record his final seconds on their phone instead..
