Suspect being questioned in deadly NYC subway shoving incident

NEW YORK » New York City police are questioning a suspect in the death of a subway rider who was shoved onto the tracks.

New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne says investigators recovered security video showing a man fitting the description of the assailant working with street vendors near Rockefeller Center.

Police went there today and took him into custody.

Ki-Suck Han of Queens died shortly after being hit by a train Monday at the Times Square subway station.

Police say he tried to climb a few feet to safety, but got trapped between the train and the platform's edge.

Subway pushes are unusual. Among the more high-profile cases was the January 1999 death of Kendra Webdale. A former mental patient admitted he shoved her to her death.

Heehee. Actually, the victims will be pushed from the elevated track and land below on the homeless people's encampments. Just another reason to scrap the rail project!!

If you ever rode the Subway in NYC or the Metro in DC; they don't have safety railings seperating the train from landings, according to the sketches of our future elevated rail they do for safety hence the height issue is obvious!
