NEW YORK, Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Two people survived falling onto the tracks of the New York City subway, witnesses said, days after a man was killed when pushed into the path of a train.

A man tumbled onto the tracks at Bowling Green Station in Manhattan's financial district Thursday night, and another man, attempting to pull him to safety, fell to the tracks as well, the New York Daily News reported Friday.

Both men scrambled to safety as a train entered the station, witness Margaret Besheer said.

"Everyone was panicking. I was standing, waiting for the Downtown 4 Train, and all of a sudden I hear gasping. It all happened so fast. Thank God this had a happy ending."

On Monday, Ki-Suck Han, 58, was struck and killed after he was pushed into the path of a moving train at Manhattan's 49th Street Station. Nareem Davis, 30, was arraigned Wednesday for second-degree murder in what apparently began as a train-platform altercation, the newspaper said.
