    Police arrested a man in connection with the fatal push of a 58-year-old man in front of a train in Manhattan's Times Square on Monday afternoon.

The photographer who took the picture of a man from Queens who'd been pushed into the path of a subway train says he was too far down the platform to have saved him.

Freelance photographer R. Umar Abbasi tells NBC's "Today" show that he wasn't trying to take a photo of the man, but was trying to alert the motorman to what was going on.

He says he's shocked that people nearer to the victim didn't try to help in 22 seconds before the train struck.

Abbasi's photo set off an ethical debate after it appeared on the front page of the New York Post.

Ki-Suck Han  died shortly after being pushed by a stranger onto the tracks Monday.

On Tuesday, the NYP Arrested a man in connection with the deadly push.

Fox 5 News reported that Naemm Davis confessed to the crime during questioning and was arrested.
