NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A woman shoved a man in front of a No. 7 train in Queens on THursday, killing him, police said.

The NYPD has released a surveillance video of the suspect running from the 40 Street-Lowery Street station on Queens Boulevard in Sunnyside.

She is described as a heavyset Hispanic woman in her 20s. She is approximately 5 feet 5 inches tall with brown or blond hair. She was wearing a blue, white and gray ski jacket and Nike sneakers with gray on top and red on the bottom.

Witnesses said she was walking back and forth on the platform, talking to herself, before taking a seat alone on a wooden bench near the north end of the platform.

When the train pulled into the station, the woman got up from the bench and pushed the man, identified as Sunando Sen, 46, who was standing with his back to her, onto the tracks into the path of the train.

Sen appeared not to notice her, according to witnesses.

He was hit by the first of the 11-car train, with his body pinned under the front of the second car as the train came to a stop.

No. 7 train service was suspended between Court Square and 61 Street-Woodside Avenue, the MTA said.

Reward are being offered for information that helps break the case of who shoved Sen. The NYPD is offering $10,000 for information leading to arrest and conviction of a suspect. Crime Stoppers is offering $2,000 for information leading to arrest and indictment of the person responsible.

Anyone with information can contact the NYPD Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS or at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
