A Good Samaritan – JAM

Hugo Tale-Yax is a hero in my book. The 31-year-old homeless and out-of-work Guatemalan immigrant died April 18 after he stopped to help rescue a woman from an attacker. It happened on a Queens, New York city street in full view of a surveillance camera and dozens of people passing by. The woman was attacked and busy New Yorkers passed by with averted eyes until Hugo stepped in. The attacker turned on him and stabbed him and fled. The woman also fled and the citizens of New York ignored him, some stepping over his bleeding body. Hugo was a Good Samaritan in a day when there are fewer and fewer Good Samaritans.
