A hardworking father of two was killed Sunday when a stranger shoved him off a Bronx subway platform and into the path of a train — as his horrified wife looked on, family and police sources said.
A suspect was spotted minutes later boarding a city bus — and then hopping off to coolly smoke a cigarette.
Victim Wai Kuen Kwok, 61 — who worked in a kitchenware factory in Brooklyn so that his two kids wouldn’t have to struggle — was on his way to Chinatown with his wife to do their weekly grocery shopping, the couple’s grieving son told The Post.
Kwok and his wife, Yow Ho Lee, were standing on the platform at the East 167th Street station in Highbridge shortly before 9 a.m. when the killer suddenly pushed the Chinese immigrant in front of an oncoming D train.
“He doesn’t say a word to them,” a source said. “He just shoves the guy and takes off.”
The motorman witnessed the push and slammed on his brakes, but it was too late, a transit source said. The lead subway car struck Kwok while his body was still in midair. Several of the train’s cars then rolled over him. See the horrifying VIDEO HERE!
