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.

“Snuff porn,” another user labeled it.
A freelance photographer captured the image Monday after someone shoved the man, 58-year-old Ki-Suck Han, from a subway platform near Times Square.
