NEW YORK — Authorities say a man has died after he was struck by a subway train in Manhattan. Police are looking for a suspect, a man witnesses say was mumbling to himself before pushing the victim.

The incident occurred around 12:30 p.m. Monday at 49th Street and Seventh Avenue. Transit officials say the incident involved a southbound "Q'' train.

The victim has not been identified.

Patrick Gomez, who was in the station, says he heard a "thud that didn't sound normal" when the train pulled into the station. He says people started screaming and running.

He says police evacuated the platform within minutes.

The incident affected service on "N," ''Q" and "R trains.
