NEW YORK — A man was pushed to his death in front of a New York subway train, police said, in the second such incident this month for the biggest US rapid transit system.
A suspect, described as a heavyset Hispanic woman, shoved the man into the path of an oncoming train late Thursday on an elevated station platform in the borough of Queens, police said in a statement.
The man’s body was pinned under the first car of the 11-car train. The woman fled the scene.
Witnesses told police that the woman, who appeared to be in her 20s, was walking back and forth talking to herself before approaching the man from behind and pushing him as the train entered the station.
The man did not notice her before the attack, the statement said.
A subway rider was pushed onto the tracks in front of an oncoming train on December 3, and a New York man was charged in the death.
The system is used by more than 5 million riders a day. (Reuters)
