(CNN) — The man in the picture has his back to the camera. He’s desperately clawing at a subway platform, looking right at the train that’s bearing down on him as he stands on the tracks.

It’s a terrifying, heart-wrenching image, and it’s generating a lot of criticism for the newspaper that used it on its front page — the salty, sensational New York Post.

Why didn’t the photographer help? Why did the newspaper publish the photo?
