Italians shocked by man's selfie after train accident in Piacenza



Quote:
When a Canadian woman was hit by a train and badly injured in northern Italy, rescue services quickly went to her aid on the tracks.

But as they treated the victim a young man captured the scene from the station platform in a selfie that has provoked widespread anger.

He was himself pictured by a news photographer who complained "we have completely lost a sense of ethics".

Police caught the young selfie-taker and forced him to delete his picture.

The young Canadian woman caught up in the accident late last month was taken to hospital and had a leg amputated.

That is very insensitive of that young man; on the other hand, it may be stereotypical of a generation raised more on digital than interpersonal contact. One wonders if he was smiling when he took it.

Maybe she was trying to take her own selfie like this guy?

Funny how this journalist questions this kids ethics while himself picturing the very same injured person on the scene.

Sad how most journalists today are bad people.
