A woman has died after being pushed in front of a subway train in New York.
Michelle Alyssa Go, 40, was the victim of an ‘unprovoked’ attack at Times Square station on Saturday morning.
A man is said to have first approached another woman who feared he would shove her on the tracks.
He then pushed Ms Go, who is thought to have not had any interaction with him beforehand.
There are concerns the attack against Ms Go, who was of Asian descent, may have been a hate crime as offences of this nature surge across the US.
’This latest attack causing the death of an Asian American woman in the Times Square subway station is particularly horrifying for our community’, Margaret Fung, executive director of the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, said.
‘These attacks have left Asian Americans across the city and across the country feeling vulnerable and they must stop.’
