For the crime of allegedly snapping a selfie in front of the Brooklyn Bridge around the same time that a suicidal man was threatening to jump off it, one anonymous woman landed both herself and her selfie on the cover — the cover — of today's New York Post.
With scores of onlookers watching the dramatic 10 a.m. rescue by cops, the crass camerawoman turned her back to the scene, angled her phone toward the bridge and snapped a shot.
The scarf-clad blonde even cracked a thin smile.
When approached by The Post afterward, she suddenly became camera-shy.
“I’d rather not,” she said when asked for her name. She then hustled out of Brooklyn Bridge Park.
In a follow up interview with the Daily Mail, Post photographer Paul Martinka said he couldn't remember "if she had an accent," but added, "She was a tourist, I'm sure of that."
As for the man on the bridge, he was eventually talked down by a police officer and taken to a hospital for evaluation. But who cares about that.
