Woman Faints on Subway Platform in Brooklyn, Killed by Train
NBC New York reports that a woman was struck and killed by a moving train today this morning after fainting on a subway platform at Eastern Parkway and Utica Avenue Station in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Crown Heights.
This death is but the latest in a barrage of recent subway deaths. Fifty-five people died last year after being pushed, falling, or jumping onto tracks.
Says NBC, "Brooklyn-bound 3 trains are running express from Atlantic Avenue to Utica Avenue, and some southbound 4 trains are rerouted. There are delays in both directions."
More updates as they come.
