New York City police say a man has been shoved in front of a subway train and has been killed.

Investigators are searching for the woman believed to have pushed him Thursday night (local time) in Queens.

It's the second time a man was shoved to his death on subway tracks this month.

Ki-Suck Han was pushed in front of a train in Times Square on December 3rd.

A photograph of him moments before the train hit him was published on the cover of the New York Post and caused an uproar.

Thursday's subway killing happened on a platform for the 7 train, which connects Manhattan and Queens.

Witnesses tell police a heavyset Hispanic woman in her 20s had been following the man and mumbling.

They say she was wearing a blue, white and gray ski jacket and sneakers.
