HAMILTON HEIGHTS (PIX11) — A homeless man has been arrested for pushing a Brooklyn man onto subway tracks.

Shou Kuan Lin, 72, and his wife were waiting for the A train at 145th St. Friday afternoon when a man pushed Lin off the platform.

Commuters jumped in to rescue the grandfather before an oncoming train hit him.

Lin suffered a broken collar bone and cracked skull in the fall.
