What is going on in the New York City subway stations lately? They have now become one of the most dangerous modes of transportation in New York.
The latest death occurred on Thursday night on the NYC subway platform–the second in one month–after a person described as a woman following a man and mumbling to herself before she pushed him to his death, according to the Huffington Post.
According to New York Police Department chief spokesman Paul Browne, it didn’t appear that the man knew the woman or noticed her before she pushed him onto the tracks. Neither of them have been identified, but the victim’s attacker’s description is:
“Hispanic, in her 20s, heavyset and about 5-foot-5, wearing a blue, white and gray ski jacket and Nike sneakers with gray on top and red on the bottom.”
Once again, there was no report of anyone trying to help the man off the tracks before he was struck by the train and killed. Unfortunately, the other incidents don’t seem to have brought out the heroism in NYC’s subway riders.
