A New York City man who was pushed in front of a NYC subway train has died, the second such fatality this month.
The incident took place in front of the Queens Boulevard and 40th street station in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Queens, in the path of the number 7 train just after 8pm.
The victim, a 46 year old man, remained under the train for at least two hours after police investigated. Videotape shows a heavy set Hispanic woman in her 20s running from the scene wearing a blue, white and gray ski coat and gray Nike shoes with red soles.
Witnesses say the woman was pacing on the platform while talking to herself before standing behind the victim and pushing him onto the tracks.
On December 3, 58 year old Ki-Suck Han was killed after being pushed onto the tracks by 30 year old Naeem Davis, who said he was convinced to push the man in by voices in his head.
Despite the killings, murders in NYC decreased by 19 percent this year.
