You probably heard of this story and saw this photo, Suspect confesses in pushing death of Queens dad in Times Square subway station:
The picture was snapped by New York Post freelance photographer R. Umar Abbasi — who chose to run toward the train firing his flash to warn the operator and caught the image.
Naeem Davis, 31, an immigrant from Sierra Leone, said during an interview at Rikers Island Friday morning that he had no intention of killing Han, a 58-year-old Queens dad who was crushed by a Q train at the 49th Street and Seventh Avenue station Monday.
“I didn’t mean to push him that hard,” said Davis, who wore a bright orange jumpsuit and had a scraggly black goatee, “I just wanted him to get away from me.
“God was testing me. I failed that test.”
After Han was struck by the train, Davis ran from the station, but turned himself in the next day once he knew police were searching for him.
Davis said he is a devout Muslim who usually visits a mosque daily. He said he regretted Han’s death.
