Daughter of man hit by train sues MTA
The daughter of a man who was fatally pushed in front of a train will sue the MTA.
Ashley Han, daughter of Ki-Suk Han, filed a lawsuit against the MTA today, according to the New York Post.
The Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit alleges that the MTA did not keep the platform safe.
The family wants monetary damages, including funeral costs, according to the newspaper.
An MTA spokesman told Metro today that they would not comment on pending litigation.
Metro previously reported that his family had been considering a lawsuit.
The family’s attorney told Metro they were “distraught, shocked, upset” after Han’s death, which became citywide news after a New York Post photographer captured the moment.
Naeem Davis, 30, a homeless man, was charged with murder.
Han’s death prompted a conversation about how to prevent fatalities in the tracks, from some saying trains should move slower to others proposing platform doors.
