Shut your fucking pie hole. You obviously didn't watch the video. You can't read, speak, type, or spell correctly. If you had a brain, you would have seen a man leaning against the platform in the beginning of the video with two women trying to encourage him to get up from the train corridor. At that time a couple of men could have easily given him a hand up. He was no where near the third rail. Many people looked on as he continued to stand there and later stumbled over to the rail, fell down across them and began to short out the tracks. You are an idiot! Go sot off!

Exactly.

And I wonder if people heard the woman who offered out her hand say, "WE care."

I can only guess that he must have suggested that no-one cares about him.

You know?

There are people on this forum in far better shape than that poor man and many of us have expressed that WE'RE worn out and ready to move on.

That guy probably would have felt like a king living in conditions we are used to.

I DO believe in some instances death is a better solution than some qualities of life.

I'm just grateful this poor man no longer has to suffer the glares directed towards him, the judgments, the hunger, the rats he slept with, a crippled body and perhaps most of all, memories of a time when he was once loved and full of hope.

So, so sad.

I doubt he was homeless and I doubt he was a poor misunderstood black man just getting his act together.
Nice bright white shoes yes? Probably Nike's.
It is always Nike's.

More like he was a druggy P.O.S who no doubt robbed, raped and terrorized people who had lives, had jobs, families.
One less leech sucking us dry.

No worries though, he had a handful of little sprogs by random women. He passed on his highly evolved genetic code.
Count on it.

People die every damn day in horrific ways. How can these bleeding hearts have the gall to preach to us when they live safely behind a gated community?
Have you been robbed or vandalized by your beloved pets?
Probably not.

I think you lovers of African culture should really think about letting your daughter date one, have some children.
I mean it is the thing to do right?
It would prove how tolerant you are, you could show off little Tyrone to your fellow open minded Christian friends right?

Although you've said it in a profoundly stupid way...this is true. In the moment, you have no time to rationalize. All you have is the "coulda, woulda, shoulda" afterwards to repeat in your head over and over and over.

The point is, they tried to help him...which is more than you could possibly expect considering the danger this man posed to everyone in that subway. They were unable to help him and he died. I don't understand why everybody's so pissed off for folks watching him fry.
That's like watching someone fall off a cliff and turning to the person next to you to say "Help him you asshole!"

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18818840


He's (the guy on the tracks)the type of psycho who would throw someone else on the tracks. They are all over the transit system in NY.

The biggest idiot is the woman trying to give her hand to him. He might have pulled her down there with him.

All that being said, there is a button on the end of each platform that can be pressed to cut power to the 3rd rail.

Hit it, and wait for the police, who are then going to wait for Emergeny Service to get him off the tracks.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19114053


all those who were on the platform are guilty of murder.

that power cut off button should have been pressed as soon as the drunk/drugged guy was on the track, when they were trying to convince him to get back on the platform.

that is when they should have pressed the button.

and because they did nothing they are all guilty of murder.

ignorance and ignorance of the law is no defence

Re: Drunken Man Electrocuted to Death on NYC Subway (Video is Graphic) Dont watch if you dont want to see it!
THIS is what a power shutoff switch looks like. These are the ones in Toronto, located just on the inside wall of the subway tunnel, within arm's reach of the public platform edge.

Also note, these are APART from the brightly lit ones for normal public use.

These are the kind all subway stations have, at the end of their platforms, because it's a goddamn safety feature and the track crews might need them.

[link to www.flickr.com]
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1044523


Everyone is yammering for a solution. "Do this do that they could have done this or that." STFU

Turning off the switch would not have saved him even if you did it in time. Those lines run on Direct Current and shutting them off would not discharge them. You can shut them off and then walk up and touch them an hour later AND YOU ARE DEAD.

Now, for people saying they should have lifted him up etc... you are all full of shit bleeding heart liberals. If you feel so self important to save "disadvantaged" people's lives, then get your lazy asses over to a shelter or treatment center and start grabbing people and lifting them up there.

So many bullshit artists on this site have millions of solutions but are sitting in a chair typing about their heroism and stoicism.

Herotards. Emergencybuttontards. Solutiontards.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19137811


^^THIS^^

Look at all the HEROTARDS who continue on this thread with their Emergencybuttontardedness. I see a bunch of GLPtarts who never read the threads but simply mutter how their world is perfect since they have all the "answers" and all the time in the world to offer them up online. HA

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19213595


Agreed.

The worst is the desk jockeys claiming the bystanders are murderers. Anyone making such an accusation is a genuine asshole, who clearly does not know shit about shit.

First, I ride the NYC subway virtually every weekday, and I have never seen nor even heard of a cutoff switch. The argument about whether or not there is one in the tunnel is ludicrous. Even if there is, 99.9% of subway riders don't know about it, so it's a moot point.

Secondly, especially at 34th/Penn, which is a byzantine maze, it is not easy to reliably find an officer. it's not like there is a gendarme, leaning on a nightstick, tipping his hat to the ladies, on every platform. There is probably an intercom button some place on the platform, but it would certainly take the average person a couple of minutes to find it.

Third, for all the self-confidence espoused here, the fact is most people in these situations freeze. It is just human nature. Your brain has a hard time switching from its daily humdrum habit to fully acknowledge the emergency. This is a very well-known psychological phenomenon and has contributed in the past to worse outcomes in subway emergencies.


Finally, speaking as a big, strong guy who has done plenty of physical lifting, trying to help someone onto a platform is a difficult task - you do not have much leverage, but it is normally possible since the individual is trying to climb out at the same time. Lifting dead weight is very difficult. Lifting a person who is resisting is basically impossible. This guy was resisting. Trying to do more than hold him would have ended up with someone else down on the tracks.

Speaking as someone who has dealt with emergencies in other parts of the world, Americans are actually exceptionally good at dealing with situations where strangers are in harm's way and will typically make much greater personal risks to aid them. This is not a slight against Europeans - Europeans typically also react well, although to be honest, not as courageously as Americans. It's a cultural thing. Both cultures are much more encouraging of personal risk to help strangers than most cultures in the world.

Not ONE of those stupid fucking witnesses went to the power cutoff button, tried the help intercom, or went up to the ticket booths to have someone cut the power?

FUCKING IDIOTS.

Go ahead and say he was drunk/homeless/crazy/whatthefuckever. The point still remains there's a goddamn body on the tracks and shit needs to be shut down.

There's nothing I hate more than useless little shits who just stand around and scream.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1044523


..and film.

they are all guilty of murder any one of those persons on the platform could have hit the emergency power cut off as soon as the obviously intoxicated/mentally ill guy was on the the tracks.

i say try them for murder.

there was no accident about this.

it could have been avoided.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19104260


These comments make me very sad. Look how much people assume.

To ME, this didn't look at all like a guy who was simply drunk. He looked like he had been homeless for some time (judging by his attire).

Maybe he lived down there like many do.

I know the tunnels under the casinos in Vegas are PACKED with homeless.

As for the people on the platform not doing more, what if they didn't know what to do?

How many were vacationers? After all, there are very few and by the comments most locals knew the trains would be running late.

I've visited NYC several times. I sure as hell don't know about buttons to press, or third rails, etc.

I can only assume by that big yellow line that your probably not supposed to step further than that point while waiting for a train.

I just wonder how many people would have passed this same guy had they seen him on the street begging for change to buy a decent meal.

Funny how a "smelly old bum" becomes important once his death is witnessed.

RIP, buddy. Surely you are in a better place now than the hell you experienced in your final years on this earth.

Its funny all the comments people are making but what if this was your son? or a close family member? I always find it funny how people can watch a video of someone losing their life and make stupid comments like "the train was late" or "no sparks" or say "nothing disturbing in this video" I mean what a bunch of retards.

darwin, mate.

you do dull things, you take the flak for it, alive or dead.

there are 7 billion of us on this rock right now, so empathy is in short supply. In hindsight, every single one of the bystanders would have stopped him doing what he did I suppose, but if you get THAT insensible, if you ALLOW yourself to get in that state, and something like that happens, who's to blame?

YOU!

having said that, i can't talk, because I have got incredibly insensible in drink. I suppose I've just been lucky. A few years back I was in town, and about 9pm found myself under a car, people saying to me 'it's ok, the ambulance will be here now'

I thought I was in bed. lol

had a hell of a bump on my head, and felt terrible for a couple of weeks, but I survived.

hope no-one videoed it! chuckle

And also even though I'm not religious right now, posts like yours are one of the reasons I still wanna believe in something bigger, because if most of the human race breaks down our living to just simple nature, then we truly are doomed and should be scared of sick fucks like you who wouldn't dare help someone in need.

why would someone post some morbid stuff like this?!?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10077834


I don't know, some people get off on it. Even the ones who are all teary and sad about it are getting off on it in their own morbid way. That's why I hate seeing threads like "Man rapes 6 month old baby for 4 hours!!!!" And I'm thinking, YEAH, that's great, that's what I came here for, to be purely disgusted and shocked and for some, titilated, though they might not admit it even to themselves.

SO it's a news story like this one. SO it's shocking, it's not controversial, everybody's against it unless they've got a mental problem, so why open a thread to discuss it? You might so - oh well, look - it was a good idea, it has 12 pages of comments so far! So? That's not from the story itself - not much to discuss really - but it populated mainly from someone who said something that pissed someone off and the domino effect started.

He's (the guy on the tracks)the type of psycho who would throw someone else on the tracks. They are all over the transit system in NY.

The biggest idiot is the woman trying to give her hand to him. He might have pulled her down there with him.

All that being said, there is a button on the end of each platform that can be pressed to cut power to the 3rd rail.

Hit it, and wait for the police, who are then going to wait for Emergeny Service to get him off the tracks.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19114053


all those who were on the platform are guilty of murder.

that power cut off button should have been pressed as soon as the drunk/drugged guy was on the track, when they were trying to convince him to get back on the platform.

that is when they should have pressed the button.

and because they did nothing they are all guilty of murder.

ignorance and ignorance of the law is no defence
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19104260

Of course I haven't seen a subway since I was a child; but, seriously, I had no idea there was such a button. Is that common knowledge in the states?
 Quoting: JDSGUAM2


The switch is there for workers only, not for regular people that pass by. It's only accessible for them, otherwise you'd have fucking retards and idiots switching off the power all the time.

THIS is what a power shutoff switch looks like. These are the ones in Toronto, located just on the inside wall of the subway tunnel, within arm's reach of the public platform edge.

Also note, these are APART from the brightly lit ones for normal public use.

These are the kind all subway stations have, at the end of their platforms, because it's a goddamn safety feature and the track crews might need them.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1044523


Everyone is yammering for a solution. "Do this do that they could have done this or that." STFU

Turning off the switch would not have saved him even if you did it in time. Those lines run on Direct Current and shutting them off would not discharge them. You can shut them off and then walk up and thouch them an hour later AND YOU ARE DEAD.

Now, for people saying they should have lifted him up etc... you are all full of shit bleeding heat liberals. If you feel so self important to save "disadvantaged" people's lives, then get your lazy asses over to a shelter or treatment center and start grabbing people and lifting them up there.

So many bullshit artists on this site have millions of solutions but are sitting in a chair typing about their heroism and stoicism.

Herotards. Emergencybutton tards. Solutiontards.
