There are Good Samaritans and then there are, well, this guy. Transit police in Boston are seeking a man who walked away with a woman's phone after she was struck and killed by a subway train, reports the Boston Herald. Surveillance video shows that after the woman was hit by the train at a station—she either jumped or fell, and foul play is not suspected—her phone flew backward onto the platform. Our hero then enters the scene.
“The male keeps his foot on top of the phone as he scans the area apparently to see if anyone is watching him,” says a police statement. After a moment, he reaches down, pockets the phone, and walks away. “Ninety-nine percent of all of the other people were concerned about what happened, running to the end of the train to see if they could help,” a transit police spokesperson tells the Boston Globe. “This gentleman had a different idea.” (And this subway story has a better ending.)
