Beyond Bystander Apathy

Bystander gold-digging? When opportunity knocks…

“Swedish police have released video footage showing a man leaving an unconscious man to die on the underground train track after mugging him at a station in southern Stockholm.

The security video from a Stockholm train station shows a 38-year-old drunk man falling on to train tracks last week.
A bystander who witnessed the accident jumps down after him, but not for a daring rescue before an approaching train arrives.

Instead, the witness steals the man’s valuables, climbs back on the platform and leaves his victim to be hit by the train.

The victim, who was on his way home from a party survived, but was seriously injured. Doctors had to amputate half his left foot, Sweden’s TV3 channel reported.

Swedish police now hope that surveillance camera footage of the incident at a Stockholm subway station early on Sunday will help them find and arrest the unscrupulous thief.”
