Man Pushed in Front of Subway Train in New York City; Suspect at Large

A man pushed in front of subway train died instantly on Sunday morning in the Bronx as his wife looked on in horror.

Wai Kuen Kwok, 61, and his wife were reportedly on their way to breakfast in Chinatown — a weekend ritual — Sunday morning around 8:45 a.m. when an unidentified male suspect pushed Kwok in front of an oncoming D train at the East 167th Street Station near Grand Concourse.

"He doesn’t say a word to them," a source told the New York Post. "He just shoves the guy and takes off."

Wife Yow Ho Lee, 59, does not speak very much English, but screamed "Push! Push!" when the police arrived.

Police have released footage of the suspect fleeing the scene. It shows the middle aged African-American man boarding a Bx35 bus, disembarking three stops later at Edward L. Grant Highway and Jesup Ave., and smoking a cigarette.

Anyone with information about the man is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.

"Please tell the world he is a fine, regular family man," Kwok's son, Gary Kwok, 29, a doctoral student at Adelphi University, told The New York Times.

According to The Independent U.K., there have been three incidents of people being pushed in front of a New York subway train since 2012. At least two of the incidents involved subway riders being shoved by homeless people.
