Yes, it sure was. The very LEAST he could have done was

spare her family having to see or hear of her being burned to death, which is about the most painful way to go that there is. They will suffer for the rest of their days thinking about the way their daughter died and that she was alive, burning to death, and the one who could have helped her, didn't. The agony of that knowledge will eat them alive.

Dead is dead, but it DOES matter how and when. My husband's younger brother died in a car accident when he was only 21 years old. He and the driver hit a tree at 100mph and the car immediately burst into flames. The coroner confirmed that Paul was dead on impact so the flames just didn't matter. Also, the homeowners who rushed outside when they heard the crash made a point of telling my husband that when they began trying to pry open the passenger door to get him out before the flames were too much to continue, even with a hose on them trying to put them out, that he was very clearly already dead, and assured him that he'd not felt a single flame, believing correctly that it would matter to the family very much to know that.

So, provided that someone is not risking their life or limbs trying to extricate a dead body, people should do their best to spare a victim's FAMILY the kind of nightmares they'll have for the rest of their lives if they fear, believe, or know that their loved one suffered horribly before their death as they will surely imagine it night after night after night. It's tough enough to lose someone suddenly to a horrific accident without having nightmares about it forever. So, once the victim is dead, it's not about them, it's about sparing their loved ones.
