Mourners attended a funeral service in the Flushing section of Queens Thursday for the man pushed to his death in front of a subway train in Midtown.

The body of 58-year-old Ki-Suck Han was then taken to a crematory.

A homeless man, 30-year-old Naeem Davis, has been charged with second-degree murder in connection with Han's death.

Davis, who is being held without bail, told reporters on Wednesday that Han attacked him first.

Amateur video shows the two were arguing on the platform of the 49th Street station in the moments before Han was hit by the train.

Sources say Davis has multiple prior arrests and served jail time from 2003 to 2007 in Pennsylvania.
