Can you see the man’s head? Several posters on Yahoo could not. They fail, or refuse, to notice the man’s face over the edge of the jacket. A poster remarked about the face being partially concealed by the jacket, but still the other posters maintain that the image shows a man without his head.
I can see his mouth, his nose, and a bloody and bruised right eye, as well as tuffs of dark hair against the dark jacket of the fireman with the yellow helmet. The victim’s hand is shown holding about the firefighter’s wrists and the flesh looks clear and healthy. What causes people to believe that anyone would post an image of a headless victim? Morbid curiosity? Personally, I would rather think positively about this image and the fate of the accident victims. Guessing my curiosity doesn’t roll in the direction of morbidity.
Can you see it? Can you see the man’s head?
