(RNN) – The New York Post advanced the recent trend of shocking news covers by printing a photo of a man in the path of a Times Square subway moments before he was struck and killed.
Tuesday's edition had "DOOMED" in bold, white print over the image of the man standing in the path of an oncoming train that was just feet away.
Ki Suk Han, 58, a resident of Queens, unsuccessfully tried to climb back onto the platform after a deranged man who frequents the subway shoved him onto the tracks. The two had been arguing minutes before the incident.
According to witnesses, the train dragged Han several feet and crushed him to death.
Freelance photographer R. Umar Abbasi was on the platform working on an unrelated project for the newspaper, according to a video posted on its website.
"I saw somebody from the side of my eyes being pushed onto the platform," Abbasi said. "There was a huge gasp from all the spectators."
Abbasi said he fired the flash on his camera several times to warn the train driver, but at that point he was too close to come to a timely stop.
According to the Post, a second-year resident at Beth Israel Medical Center attended to Han, but he never took a breath. He was pronounced dead later at a hospital.
Han lived with his wife and college-age daughter. Han's widow told the Post the two had a fight before he left home that morning, and he did not return her repeated phone calls.
Police are still looking for Han's attacker, described as a black male in his 30s or early 40s, about 5'9" with short dreadlocks and wearing a white T-shirt, dark jacket, dirty jeans, black sneakers with white stripes and a black beanie cap.
Reaction about the cover blazed across social media, and people took the newspaper to task on Twitter.
This year, shocking covers seemed the norm for large news organizations.
Time featured a May cover series called "Are You Mom Enough?" with a woman breastfeeding her 3-year-old son while he stood on a chair. The series was dedicated to attachment parenting, which among other things, involves breastfeeding children well past infancy.
That same month Newsweek printed on its cover President Obama with a rainbow-colored halo above his head. The magazine called him the "first gay president" because of his support of same-sex marriage.
