A suspect, reportedly a 30-year-old street vendor, has "implicated himself" in the death of a man pushed onto subway tracks in New York City near Times Square this week. The case attracted national attention after the New York Post published a controversial front-page picture showing the doomed man, 58-year-old Ki-Suck Han, desperately looking at an oncoming train just before it hit him, pinning him against the platform and killing him in front of horrified commuters. The photo was snapped by a freelance photographer who happened to be on the platform.
