    And instead of helping the guy, the photographer thinks first about taking a picture? I wonder if it's staged.

    Wonder how much longer he stayed walking for, after the adrenaline wore off.

    I've seen someone walk away from an accident a then spend months in hospital due to back injuries.

    But journalists always think about the story before helping, kind of like a wildlife photographer - they don't like to interfere...
