A scene recently played out at a Brooklyn L train station in which several onlookers avoided assisting a man who’d fallen on the tracks and was bleeding. Instead, one onlooker shot video of the situation and uploaded it to YouTube — and all this as there was 13 minutes until the next incoming train! Luckily, it’s been reported that the man made it off the tracks, but in light of this and separate incidents in which Ryan Gosling and Kate Winslet played heroes in public, we were left wondering whether New Yorkers would act as proverbial Good Samaritans in a similar situation.
