    The family of a New York City man killed by a subway train after being pushed to his death by a homeless person has filed a lawsuit against the city.

    The lawsuit filed Friday by the family of Ki-Suk Han seeks unspecified damages stemming from his Dec. 3 death. It accuses the MTA of negligence.

    Police say a homeless man admitted pushing Han onto the tracks but said Han was drunk and instigated the confrontation.

    The family is suing for funeral costs and unspecified damages.
