Frankly, it's surprising the New York subway has not already been successfully sued for such an obvious and deadly design flaw.
There is a space under the platforms. When I used to ride the subway on a daily basis I considered crawling under the platform as the first option in case I ever found myself down there when a train was coming. I guess I'm just repeating StoneNYC in saying that Mr. Han had other options besides climbing back on the platform. I'm not trying to implicate Mr. Han in his own death, just correcting the quoted post. Everyone has a plan until there's a train heading at them.
