What would you do?

Quote:
(April 24) -- A homeless man who was stabbed while saving a woman from a knife-wielding attacker lay dying in a pool of his own blood for more than an hour while several New Yorkers walked past without calling for help.

Surveillance video obtained by the New York Post shows that some passers-by paused to gawk at Hugo Alfredo Tale-Yax early Sunday morning and yet kept on walking.

One man came out of a nearby building and took a cellphone photo of the victim before leaving. Another leaned over and vigorously shook the dead man before walking away. But most people never stopped.

Firefighters arrived more than an hour and 20 minutes after Tale-Yax collapsed. By that time, the 31-year-old was dead.

"They needed to help and call the police. I don't get it," resident Ramon Bellasco, 46, told the Post.

The incident happened at 7:21 a.m. almost a week ago at 88 Road and 144th Street in the borough of Queens, but police didn't have a clear idea of what happened until recently.

Tale-Yax is seen on the grainy video approaching a man who was threatening a woman with a knife. The man turned and stabbed Tale-Yax but most of the action is out of the security camera's field of vision. Both the stabber and the woman then fled in different directions and Tale-Yax stumbled a few paces before collapsing face-down on the sidewalk.

Within a minute or so, the first of a long series of people begins walking by Tale-Yax without going to his aid.

Police told the Post they received four 911 calls at around the time of the attack reporting a woman screaming, but found nothing. They said they received no other 911 calls.

The incident is reminiscent of the **** and murder of Kitty Genovese, also in Queens, in 1964. In that case, dozens of people witnessed some or all of the attack and yet no one did anything to stop it.

No arrests have been made in the latest slaying, and police have been unable to identify the woman Tale-Yax was trying to help


So I was just wondering what would any of you do? Would you take meer minutes to call the police, or would you as others did simply walk by and do nothing?

I definitely would have helped him by calling. I would have stayed there too, because who wants to die alone in the street? Sad story.

Some people are pathetic, such as every person that watched a hero lay dying on the ground in the middle of the city. It's not required that you help anyone, but it should be human reaction.

What really upsets me the most about the situation are the two men who approached the man. One takeing a picture, and the other just shakeing the man. I mean in that time you could easily call the police. It just shows how ME-First people can be. I like to think that if I were in the situation those people were in I would atleast call the police if nothing else.

under normal circumstances if i see a man bleeding to death i'd certainly call the police.

but if the person was homeless and looked like a bum you never really know whats going on with them. was there blood everywhere? was he asking for help? or was he just rolling around on the ground acting crazy and high? which is pretty typical for bums.

That being said i will never knowingly ignore any human being who needs critical help.

I would absolutely have called 911. I'm floored that nobody did.

(No, I'm not from NYC).

Just shows how cold human nature can be, I like to think I would of at least called for an ambulance.

Can't help but think a few years back I witnessed the opposite of this situation when I was sat in a bus station waiting for a bus, an old women that was waiting there collapsed with what looked like a heart attack, they where having to get people to stand back to give her space there where that many people lined up to help her and an ambulance was called for straight away and arrived within around 5 mins, but then I'm not for the US.
