Ki Suk Han, 58, of Queens frantically tries to climb to safety yesterday as a train bears down on him in Midtown. He was fatally struck seconds later.
A Queens dad trying to protect fellow straphangers from a deranged man on a Times Square subway platform was hurled onto the tracks by the lunatic and fatally crushed by a train yesterday, cops and witnesses said.

Ki Suk Han, 58, 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 attacker, who had been menacing others in the station, looms over his victim after pushing him on the tracks.
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.”

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 help the dying man.

“People were shouting and yelling when it happened, but then people ran the other way,” said Kaplan, 27.

“I heard what I thought were heart sounds,” she said, but Han never took a breath.

“There was blood coming out his mouth. We couldn’t do CPR. He wasn’t in the right position. and there was just no way to get him out of there.”

All those people standing on the subway platform taking pictures yet no one bothered to help him climb back up from the tracks where he was pushed.

Great country isn't it?

Would you risk your own life trying to pull that panicked (and drunk) dude back on the platform knowing full well that he might pull you in or hold on to your arm until the train arrives ?? I wouldn't.

"It is absolutely reprehensible for this "photographer" to take pictures rather than lend a hand. He says he´s not strong enough to pull anyone. Really? I will only accept that from a child, or a woman less than 5 feet tall. People really underestimate their strength when faced with tragedies, but the worst part of it all is the lack or humanity on the part of the people on the platform, and this person taking photos...shame on you Abbasi, shame on you!"

"The poor guy was smaller in stature, I would imagine. Why the hell couldn't any other taller/larger MEN pull this guy to safety? You see a train coming...and you're going to just leave this guy trying to pull himself up? Surprised there wasn't anybody attempting to help this guy get back up on the platform. What's up w/the d-bag shooting the pictures? What's his deal?"

"This is SO WRONG,,, The World is Changing and Unfortunately for the Worst... Someone could have helped/saved this person's life... he was a Son, Father, Brother, Friend to Many... I truly cant believe this... it is very Sad and I Pray for his Family and Friends! May he rest in peace!
Because no one helped."

Wow it shows Mr Han still alive way before the train came. They could've saved him but chose to let him die.

There is a possibility the attacker thought the victim was a Chinese. If the victim did not identify himself as Korean, chance is most others and the attacker would think he is Chinese.

Lesson learned: If you are not Chinese, make sure you are not known as a Chinese. If you are Chinese, it might be safer to pretend not to be Chinese.

Whatever happened to all that multi-culturalism and diversity preached by some U.S. corporations? Not that it's bad, but the sources are dubious.
