72. I noticed this as well
If there was an observer to people stepping over and ignoring this man on the ground, then isn't this observer all the more the schmuck for specifically watching and doing nothing? Or, more likely, is this some story a reporter ginned up to play on the black friday narrative?

Reading the actual article to try to find an answer to this question, I noticed the bit about the nurse and paramedic. I also noted that nothing is said of how long he waited for assistance. per the actual facts presented, it could have been a long time, or it could have been 20 seconds from him hitting the ground to when someone was there assessing the situation and trying to help.
