NEW YORK (AP) — Police are looking for a suspect who witnesses say pushed another man off a Manhattan subway platform.

Authorities say the victim, Ki-Suck Han of Queens, tried to climb out, but died after getting trapped between the train and the platform edge.

Han’s wife says she and her husband had argued before Monday’s tragedy at the Times Square subway station.

His widow tells the New York Post she tried to call him after their fight, but he never picked up.

The Post reports one of its freelance photographers was on the platform as the ordeal unfolded. One of his photos shows Han on the tracks, looking at the train as it bears down on him.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Tuesday that detectives were still seeking the unidentified suspect. There is a $12,000 reward.
