8 photos taken by people who snapped a pic instead of lending a hand9/18/2012
Sometimes the temptation to snap a picture of a person or an animal in a precarious situation overrides our ability to be decent human beings and go to their aid, as yesterday's trending pictures of Campbell the cat indicate. It's just the way we're wired; we need to document the so-called "humor" before we can step in and do the right thing. Click through the gallery above to see the work of these bad-Samaritan photographers.
UPDATE: To better reflect our intent with this gallery, which was to shame the photographers for not helping out in these situations, we've removed some of the images and have changed the text. We appreciate all the feedback in the comments below.
Have you ever taken a picture before stepping in to give a hand?
