NEW YORK – The Post photographer of the horrific subway crash R. Umar Abbasi, says there was no way for him to rescue the victim. In the 49 times he fired off his flash, there wasn’t time to help Ki Suk Han, the 58-year-old from Queens, N.Y., thrown from the 49th Street station platform onto the tracks? Witnesses say Han tried for a minute to pull himself up onto the platform. That’s a long time to standby and snap photos of a man who is about to die.
