Homeless Good Samaritan Honored at NY Wake

A homeless Good Samaritan who was ignored while lying, mortally wounded, on a New York City sidewalk will be honored at a wake.

The family of Hugo Alfredo Tale-Yax was holding services for the Guatemalan immigrant on Wednesday at a Brooklyn funeral home.

Police say Tale-Yax was stabbed while helping a woman being attacked.

He was found dead on April 18, after lying on a Queens sidewalk for nearly an hour. Some passersby paused and left; others kept walking.

One of his brothers, Byron Tale-Yax, says their actions send a message about humanity.

Police are still looking for the woman Tale-Yax rescued, and the man with whom she had fought.
