For the second time in a month, a person has died after being pushed in front of a New York City Subway train. The NYPD is looking for a woman who killed a man by shoving him on the train tracks at a Sunnyside, Queens station Thursday (Dec. 28) night.
According to witnesses, the woman didn't know the man and was pacing up and down the platform at around 8 p.m. The victim was hit by a northbound 7 train, and his body became stuck under the train's second wheel.
He has not yet been identified, and had “terrible injuries that make providing a description difficult.”
Following the crime, the woman was captured on a surveillance fleeing the scene. She is described as being Hispanic with blonde or brown hair, in her 20s and is 5-feet-5-inches tall. “It's a relatively narrow platform,” said NYPD Spokesman Paul Brown. “According to witnesses he did not appear to notice her either then or before.”
At the top of the month, 58-year-old Ki-Suck Han of Queens, died after being pushed in front a train by Naeem Davis. The horrific incident was captured by a freelance photographer who sold the image to the New York Post. Davis turned himself in to police, and asserts that he pushed Han after being harassed by Han. He was indicted on second-degree murder.
