Bizarre Set Of Circumstances Contribute To Incidents Involving No. 6 Train
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A man who stepped between two subway train cars to urinate ended up being struck dead by the No. 6 train in East Harlem on Tuesday, just 10 minutes after another man was injured when he rolled onto the tracks and was injured by the same train.
In the first incident around 4 p.m., a man, who was believed to be homeless and in his 50s, found himself on the tracks for unknown reasons. Police told 1010 WINS the man was so drunk that he did not even remember being on the tracks.
The man was struck and injured by the train as he tried to get back onto the platform. He suffered a broken hip, and was reported in serious, but stable condition, at an area hospital.
Ten minutes later, the other man, who was said to be from the Bronx and had been on the same train that struck the homeless man, decided to step between two cars to urinate. He slipped and fell, and ended up being crushed by the train.
Earlier reports that the two men were involved in a dispute that led to the accident were not accurate.
As of the evening rush, there was no No. 6 line service between 96th Street in Manhattan and 3rd Avenue-138th Street in the Bronx. Northbound trains were terminating at 96th Street, while southbound trains were halted at 138th Street.
Delays were expected on the Nos. 4, 5 and 6 lines.
Multiple incidents of people being struck and killed by subway trains have splashed across the New York headlines over the past couple of months. In two incidents, riders were pushed in front of oncoming trains.
In response to the incidents, fliers were distributed last week by the Transport Workers Union Local 100 asking train operators to “enter every station as if there is a pair of yellow lanterns at the entrance.”
