She couldn’t let go.
Ashley Han, whose beloved father was shoved to his death in front of a subway train, clutched a photo of the tragic victim throughout a heartbreaking day of memorial services yesterday.
The 20-year-old and other grieving relatives started their day of mourning at the Edward D. Jamie Funeral Chapel in Flushing, where a private service was held for her 58-year-old father, Ki Suk Han.
“The pastor preached that we are immigrants here and in heaven,” said a family friend, Jong Lee.
Ashley walked out holding the framed photo to her heart and carefully carried it into the front seat of a car driven by family pastor Won Tae Cho.
LOSS: Ashley Han, walking with another mourner, clutches a photo of dad Ki Suk Han at a Queens cemetery yesterday.
Her distraught mother, Serim, was in the back seat.
They drove to St. Michael’s Cemetery in Astoria, followed by a cortege of vehicles that carried as many as 70 mourners, who watched sadly as the gray casket was solemnly rolled into the crematorium.
The entrance was decorated with six flower arrangements — two of which bore white streamers that read,“Beloved Daddy.”
Mourners were handed white roses to place on the casket.
After 20 minutes, Ashley, still holding the picture to her heart, left with the other mourners.
The day before, at the wake, Ashley Han had praised her father, saying,“I’m sorry for all my years of teenage angst. I promise to fulfill my role as your daughter.”
That same night, alleged killer Naeem Davis, 30, was arraigned and held without bail.
Assistant District Attorney James Lin said Han’s attacker “lifted the victim off his feet, pushing off the wall behind him to add more force,” as he threw him onto the train tracks below.
“The victim tumbled headfirst onto the tracks. When the victim landed on the tracks he was described as rolling over a few times like a bowling ball.”
Lin described the defendant’s demeanor during the violence as “indifferent,” and noted that he calmly gathered his possessions and walked away after he watched Han get crushed.
Davis insisted that Han was drunk and would not leave him alone on the 49th Street train platform, sources said.
The alleged killer has a mile-long rap sheet — including stealing computers from cop cars — both in New York and in Pennsylvania, according to records.

So, the attacker was still around. That's a serious threat to other people. That's why other people dared not come to pull the victim up.
How is it compared to the 2-year old toddler in China laying in bloods and no other passing by Chinese would help. The child died. There was no threat but the Chinese would not help.

I have just read some more: The Korean victim has been drinking and arguing with his wife over his unemployment. And there was the menacing attacker standing around, who would be foolish to come near and might get thrown down to the track as well.
In contrast, the evil Chinese did not help a hapless 2-year old Chinese girl laying in bloods. There was no menacing attacker standing around. Why the Chinese did not help?
America is not perfect but still better than China. I am proud to be an American.
