Last sentence, "it's not immediately clear if the the three will be charged with a crime." Are you fucking serious?

Isn't it a crime not to provide help/not to call 911 in the US too?

It can be a felony in Europe.

That would fall under duty to rescue laws. You only have to rescue someone if you caused the situation, which you can make a case that they did by stealing. Good Samaritan laws protect the person from liability for trying to help someone in need. They are often confused.
