NEW YORK (AP) - The horrific case of a man pushed to his death on the subway tracks has set New Yorkers abuzz about what they would do if caught in the same situation.

Safety experts say lying down in the trough between the tracks may work in some stations, and there might be a space between the train and the platform at some stations.

If all else fails, they seriously suggest trying to outrun the stopping train.

An obvious option is to clamber back onto the platform or hope someone lifts you up.

On Monday, 58-year-old Ki-Suck Han was shoved in front of an oncoming train to his death as other riders watched. A homeless man is charged with his murder.

Han's funeral was held Thursday.
