*** Update
Q Train Murder: Suspect Arrested In Fatal Shoving Of Ki Suk Han Onto Subway Tracks As Train Arrived
Quote:
Police have arrested a man suspected of pushing 58-year-old Ki-Suk Han onto the subway tracks at 49th Street, officials said Tuesday.

The New York Post reports a transit officer spotted the suspect near the 49th Street Station, on 50th Street near Seventh Avenue.

The suspect has not been identified, but is being described as a 30-year-old street vendor from Queens.

NYPD spokesman Paul Browne says cops tracked down the suspect using surveillance images from cameras posted in the subway station and the surrounding area.

Browne added that police were able to track him down after they "found people who knew him."

Around 12:30 PM on Monday, witnesses say they saw Han exchange heated words with a man on the subway platform, before the man pushed Han onto the tracks.

A source says Han was on the tracks for more than a minute, possibly even 90 seconds, before getting hit by the oncoming Q train.

41-year-old Anthony White recognized the suspect and said he could often be seen panhandling for money near Times Square.



"He is nuts," White said. "He would talk to himself. I’ll put it this way, as long as he didn’t bother me, I didn’t bother him. They should catch him and put him in jail for life.”
Suspect confesses in pushing death of Queens dad in Times Square subway station

A 30-year-old man confessed today to being the subway psycho who “launched” an innocent straphanger into tracks, where he was killed by an oncoming Q train, law enforcement sources told The Post.

The suspect, Naeem Davis, was being questioned today in Manhattan, in connection to the grisly death of Ki Suk Han, 58, yesterday afternoon. The man was picked up on 50th Street near Seventh Avenue by a transit police captain, who was on a coffee break at 1:30 p.m. and ran over to grab him.

The attacker, who had been menacing others in the station, looms over his victim after pushing him on the tracks. He has confessed to shoving Han. The cover of today's Post.Davis confessed to shoving Han into tracks, though he's not been formally charged yet, law enforcement sources said.

Han, of Elmherst, Queens, desperately tried to scramble back to the platform as onlookers screamed, shouted and frantically waved their hands and bags in a bid to get the downtown Q train to stop at around 12:30 p.m.

The man being questioned by cops was identified as a 30-year-old street vendor from Queens, according to law enforcement sources.

Post freelance photographer R. Umar Abbasi — who had been waiting on the platform of the 49th Street station — ran toward the train, repeatedly firing off his flash to warn the operator.

“I just started running, running, hoping that the driver could see my flash,” said Abbasi, whose camera captured chilling shots of Suk’s tragic fight for his life.

The train slowed, but a dazed and bruised Han still wound up hopelessly caught between it and the platform as it came to a halt.

A shaken Abbasi said the train “crushed him like a rag doll.”

“It's one of those great tragedies, it's a blot on all of us,” Mayor Bloomberg said today. “And if you could do anything to stop it, you would. But the good news is it happens phenomenally rarely.”

Dr. Laura Kaplan, a second-year resident at Beth Israel Medical Center who was also on the platform, sprang into action, taking off her coat, grabbing her stethoscope and rushing over to try an administer CPR with the help of a nearby security guard.

“It was terrifying, but you run on adrenaline,” Kaplan told The Post. “There was no pulse, never, no reflexes.”

“I heard what I thought were heart sounds,” she added. “We started compressions, which is half of CPR. We were unable to perform rescue breathing [the other half of CPR] because there was blood coming out of his mouth. He wasn’t in the right position [for full CPR] and there was just no way to get him out of there.

Yeah.

Like it or not, this was basically an assisted suicide.

Re: Times Square Subway - Pushed

A New York man was charged with murder and denied bail on Wednesday for pushing a subway rider onto the tracks ahead of an oncoming train in a tragedy that has traumatized witnesses and raised questions about why nobody rushed to the victim's aid.

Naeem Davis, 30, was charged with one count of second degree murder and one count of second degree murder with depraved indifference, New York City police said.

He was ordered held without bail pending a second court appearance on December 11th, Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Lynn Kottler said at a hearing late on Wednesday.

Monday's incident - captured in dramatic photographs with the train bearing down on the hapless victim -- has struck a nerve among riders of the subway used by over 5 million riders a day who are often jostled by strangers on crowded platforms.

Davis was accused of pushing Ki-Suck Han, 58, onto the tracks as a southbound train pulled into the 49th Street station. He was due to appear in New York State Supreme Court later on Wednesday or Thursday.

Davis was first brought in for questioning on Tuesday, during which he "implicated himself in the incident," according to Police Department spokesman Paul Browne.

Amateur video showed Davis and Han arguing moments before Han was shoved.

"He attacked me first," Davis told reporters as officers escorted him to jail on Wednesday. "He grabbed me."

A reporter for PIX11 television news, which captured Davis' comments, asked if he intended to kill Han, and Davis responded, "No."

Manhattan prosecutor James Lin said at a court hearing that Davis "has admitted to lifting off his feet and pushing off the wall behind him to add more force" to the fatal thrust.

Han's family recalled him as a caring father who came to the United States from South Korea 25 years ago in search of a better life.

"My dad was always someone who wanted to pursue the American dream. He really enforced my education and he was just always there for me. It's just devastating that he's gone and I'm still in disbelief," Ashley Han, a 20-year-old college student, told reporters.

Speaking softly in Korean with her head bowed, Han's wife thanked supporters and asked the media for privacy.

"We are now grieving because we've lost a husband and a father," Serim Han said.

PHOTO STIRS CONTROVERSY

The news photographer whose pictures of Han in the path of the train unleashed a maelstrom of criticism said he was too far from the victim to offer help.

R. Umar Abbasi, a freelance photographer for the tabloid New York Post, said he rapidly shot dozens of frames so that his flash might alert the motorman and that he himself was too far away to help.

Seconds later the train struck and killed Han.

"My condolences to the family, and if I could have, I would have pulled Mr. Han out," Abbasi said on NBC's "Today" show.

The Post, no stranger to controversy over lurid headlines and stories, sparked greater outrage than usual on Tuesday when it featured one of Abbasi's photographs on its front page.

Under the headline "DOOMED," it showed Han trying to pull himself from the tracks and looking into the lights of the oncoming train.

In a first-person account published in the Post, Abbasi said the incident "was one of the most horrible things I have ever seen, to watch that man dying there."

"The sad part is, there were people who were close to the victim, who watched and didn't do anything," he said. "You can see it in the pictures."

The motorman, Terrence Legree, was treated for shock after the incident, the New York Daily News reported.

Legree, who could see Han from his seat at the head of the train, told the Daily News he noticed people on the platform waving their arms to warn him and said he slammed on the emergency brake when he saw Han on the roadbed.

Legree said he was feeling "all kinds of emotions from 'Why is this happening' to 'Why was that guy down there' to 'What happened?'"

Re: Times Square Subway - Pushed

all i can see in the "pictures" is that the camera man seems closer to the victim than the rest of the straphangers.. but its ok.. he's trying to push blame away from himself because of the guilt he feels from taking shots instead of moving his dumbass to help the guy. its only human.

I have heard and seen the photographer on an interview.

My take is that he doesn't feel guilty. It's more like his ego is offended that he is getting seen in a bad light. Even though he certainly deserves it.

Most people don't really regret doing wrong. They just hate getting caught and don't like the repercussions.

If there were no consequences, they'd do it again.
