NEW YORK (AP) - The wife of a New York City man who was pushed onto subway tracks to his death by a mumbling stranger says she and her husband had argued before the tragedy.

Ki-Suck Han of Queens died at a hospital shortly after being hit by an oncoming train Monday at the Times Square subway station.

His widow tells the New York Post she tried to call him after their 11 a.m. fight, but he never picked up.

The Post says one of its freelance photographers was on the platform as the ordeal unfolded. Umar Abbasi says he tried to warn the subway operator by flashing his camera. One of his photos shows Han on the tracks, arms on the platform, looking at the train as it bears down on him.
