A woman in Russia allegedly took a picture of a man having a heart attack and posted it on Facebook and walked away leaving him to his fate.

According to a report in ‘Mirror’, 27-year-old Xenia Prokhorova was returning home from work, when she saw 22-year-old Vadim Pokrovskii collapsed on the street in Volgograd city.

She allegedly pulled out her mobile, clicked his pictures, posted them on Facebook and walked away.

Later, seeing her post one of her FB friends Yuri Shcherbakov realised it was just outside his building and went out to check and saw the man was still lying there. It was Shcherbakov who called an ambulance.

Meanwhile, people had begun commenting calling him a ‘drunk’ and ‘druggie’.

Unfortunately, he could not be saved. Medics reportedly said that “had he received immediate treatment they would have stood a chance of being able to save him”.

The woman is arrested and has been “charged with neglecting to save someone's life”.
