The indie filmmaker saved from certain death after falling on the Staten Island Railway tracks repeatedly refused to thank the man who rescued him.
“I have nothing to say,” sniffed Jonathan Parisen, 40, at the 120th Precinct station house.
A Post reporter gave Parisen...several chances to say thanks to Steven Santiago, and he instead said, “No, no no.”
Parisen later made $2,500 bail on a criminal-trespass charge.
Santiago, 39, remains critically injured from the head wound suffered when he was hit by a train after pulling the drunken movie maker to safety at the New Dorp station at 1:30 a.m. Sunday...
Evidently, an intoxicated Mr. Parisen jumped down on the tracks to retrieve his shoe, fell, and was struggling to get up when Mr. Santiago assisted him and was struck.
After this NY Post article appeared, Mr. Parisen did issue two tweets about praying for his injured rescuer.
Whatever his motivations, the negative publicity will certainly not help his current film project entitled "Terrobot"; a film about a giant robot that attacks NYC.
Maybe I have a limited vision, but I don't think the disorderly robot-thing will have a large following.
My prayers are with Mr. Santiago.
