Police are hunting a woman who pushed a man to his death in front of a Subway train - the second time this month that someone has been killed this way.

The man was standing on the elevated platform of a 7 train in the borough of Queens when he was pushed by the woman, who had reportedly been following him in closely and mumbling to herself.

According to the Daily Telegraph, New York Police Department chief spokesman Paul Browne said it did not appear that the man noticed her before he was pushed, and they did not believe the man and woman knew each other prior to the incident.

The woman fled from the scene, and police are now searching for her. She was described as Hispanic, in her 20s, thick set, and about 5ft 5in.

Linda Santini-Tripodis, the owner of Merit Group & Associates, who was beneath the 40th Street station at the time, told The Sunnyside Post: "I heard the train screech as it was stopping and then heard this loud scream.

"I'm never going to forget that scream for as long as I live."

This incident comes less than a month after another man was killed when he was shoved into the path of a Q train at 49th Street.

Ki-Suck Han, 58, was pushed in front of a train in Times Square.

According to the Daily Mail, a homeless man, 30-year-old Naeem Davis, was charged with murder and is being held without bail.

He has pleaded not guilty, claiming Han was the aggressor and had attacked him first.
The two men had never met before.
