May the father rot in the deep, dark, hot pits of hell

If you feel that you have no way out and want to take your own life, for the love of everything decent, DO NOT take others with you!

It appears that allot of NYC stories are always in that UK newspaper like they have some weird obsession with life over here or just covering the stories for clicks (ad revenue)

I can't answer why, but I am thankful for the Daily Mail and similar UK websites that report on (or report better on) US news stories that US news corporations don't cover adequately, if at all.

Well intended but not very smart as she could have had a spinal injury and could have been paralyzed by moving her without stabilizing her.

Allot could have went wrong there by jumping into action and by pulling her out any injuries could be claimed by the surviving parent to sue the "rescuers" or MTA. Some lawyer is going to approach her and get her to sue (which I cant logically see how she can win) but some where a lawyer gears are turning to make a quick buck.

Failure to stop the train in time..
Failure to power down the section of the track and get professional help in a timely manner..

Really?? This is such a sad sad story. We as Americans really need to push to re-evaluate how we view mental health disorders.

Andrew Yang is correct, we need to de-stigmatize mental health problems and have more options to help those who are going through this. I used to be a staunch Republican, very much against social care etc but Andrew Yang has helped me re-evaluate my stance on this. A lot of our country's problems (gun violence, suicides, opioid epidemic) can be alleviated with proper mental health care.

His Freedom Dividend is just a step in the right direction but there's a long way to go.

This little girl just lost her father in the most horrendous way. We need to empathize with that and not villify him. He deserves pity not hate.

She was moving, not paralyzed. She could have touched the third rail and been electrocuted while people did nothing. Those men are the best we have in society. They acted bravely and smartly. God bless them.

Are you joking? This coward tried to kill himself and murder his daughter. How does that deserve pity? I could understand if life was too much for him and took his own life. But to take someone else's as well deserves vilification. Nothing good could be said about this man.

yeah, among other improper things these days mental health is being used as an excuse for all sorts of damaging behavior

VAST majority of mentally ill are fully capable of telling right from wrong
