Another New York man pushed to death on subway tracks

By Daniel S Levine,

Another New York City man is dead after being pushed onto subway tracks.

The man, whose name has not been released, was pushed Thursday in front of the No. 7 train at an elevated Queens station, reports NBC New York.

Police are looking for a woman described as Hispanic, heavy set and in her 20s, according to The New York Times. She fled the scene on Queens Boulevard after pushing the man just after 8 p.m. Police have released a video of the woman fleeing the scene.

Witnesses say that the woman walked in circles, talking to herself before sitting alone on a bench. When the 8 p.m. train arrived, she pushed the man.

“We haven’t determined whether it was random or if there was some connection yet,” NYPD chief spokesman Paul J. Browne told the Times. He added that “...there was nothing from what the witnesses could see to indicate that they knew each other and he did not, according to the witnesses, appear to realize that she was approaching.”

Browne noted that the victim was not carrying an ID.

This is the second similar incident this month. Naeem Davis has been charged with pushing Ki-Suk Han at the 49th Street on Dec. 3. That incident was captured by a New York Post photographer and published on the paper’s front page.
