NY Post – A heroic homeless man, stabbed after saving a Queens woman from a knife-wielding attacker, lay dying in a pool of blood for more than an hour as nearly 25 people indifferently strolled past him, a shocking surveillance video obtained by The Post reveals. Some of the passers-by paused to stare at Hugo Alfredo Tale-Yax last Sunday morning and others leaned down to look at his face. He had jumped to the aid of a woman attacked on 144th Street at 88th Road in Jamaica at 5:40 a.m., was stabbed several times in the chest and collapsed as he chased his assailant. In the wake of the bloodshed, a man came out of a nearby building and chillingly took a cellphone photo of the victim before leaving. And in several instances, pairs of people gawked at Tale-Yax without doing anything. Later, another man stopped, leaned over and vigorously shook Tale-Yax’s body. After lifting the victim’s head and body to reveal a pool of blood, he also walked off. Not until some 15 minutes after he was shaken by the pedestrian — more than an hour and 20 minutes after the victim collapsed — did firefighters finally arrive and discover that Tale-Yax, 31, had died.
What’s that thing I always say? Never help anyone ever unless you’re getting a fat paycheck for it? Well looks like that applies to homeless good samaritans too. Like this guy fended off a knife-wielding lunatic and saved some chick’s life and what did he get in return? A fucking stab wound to the face and people taking cell phone pictures for Facebook while he bled out all over the street that’s what. Same story different day. And yeah it’s sad any time a homeless dude gets stabbed saving a woman’s life and people just step over his dead body like it ain’t no thing. But in all fairness when’s the last time you walked down the street and DIDN’T see a homless dude sleeping in the middle of the street? Like this is fucking Queens bro. That’s how you get by. Just keep your head down and hope nobody tries to sell you candy or slit your fucking throat.
