(KMOV) -- There's a saying that no good deed goes unpunished, and this story certainly appears to verify that .
Hugo Alfredo Tale-Yax confronted a mugger who was holding a woman at knifepoint. He was stabbed and collapsed on the sidewalk.
For the next hour and a half, passers-by saw Tale-Yax, but didn't stop to help. One man even took a picture of him, and another turned Tale-Yax over, looked at his wouds and moved on.
Someone eventually called 911, but by then, Tale-Yax was dead.
