For the second time in a month, a man has been shoved to his death in front of a train on a New York City subway platform, police said.

Police are searching for a woman seen running from an elevated station for the No. 7 train in Queens on Thursday evening, Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne said in a statement.

According to witnesses, the woman was pacing the platform and talking to herself shortly before pushing the man onto the tracks as the eleven car train entered the station.

The man's body was pinned under the second car after it came to a stop. Police have not announced his identity.

Police describe her as a heavy set woman in her 20s, wearing a ski jacket and sneakers. Security video shows her running from the scene, shortly after 8 p.m.

In early December, Ki-Suck Han, 58, was shoved onto the tracks in a Times Square station as a train approached.

Naeem Davis, 30, a homeless man, has been charged with second-degree murder in the case.
