Skip to comments.Man pushed to his death under train in Queens

The woman walked behind the man along the platform, mumbling to herself, witnesses told the police, before shoving him into the path of a northbound No. 7 train just after 8 p.m.
It is the second time this month that a man has been killed after being pushed onto the subway tracks.

At least keep them under ten cars. Anything more than that is an assault train.
What the hell ever happened to just throwing someone under the bus?
Soon, it will be less important to be the first one in line....
The poor guy.
When I used subways regularly I always stayed back against the wall until the train pulled in.
Have we all forgotten the fact that we can implement safety locks on these trains?
I take the 6 train from 86th to 14th everyday. I’ve been hyper aware since the first one happened.
In fact, in Union Square, there are almost ALWAYS insane muttering people on the platform, I even saw personally, one push a random woman once. She was leaning on the post so she didn’t fall forward and there was no train coming though.
This is getting out of hand. Lock these freakin’ sickos up, pronto.
If not, people, like me, are just going to start punching these whackos out when they present themselves in dangerous situations, which in the city can be anything really. Even standing on the sidewalk; they could just push you into traffic.
Why there is a pandemic of these f’ing sickos going about trying to commit per-meditated murder is strange, though.
Scary times. Glad I’m moving back to the burbs in July after 10 years!!! Can’t come soon enough. LOOOOONG gone are the days of the pretty, safe, affluent, Rudy G., NYC.
NYC is still the Concrete Jungle.
A relative of mine works for the NY Metro. At subway stations or train platforms he makes a habit of not standing too close and then he faces away from the incoming train to make sure no cretin from hell tries such a deed.
NYC subway users will now be required to press themselves against the subway station walls as the train approaches. Only after the train stops and the doors open can they rush to board ... this is a sick demented society. Really.
It sounds like she was armed. I thought everyone in NYC was unarmed?
True words. I can literally see it coming to that.
Lock up the crazies, NOW.
Lock up the crazies should be a campaign slogan.
Has anyone from Hollywood Tweeted?
Beyonce? Gwyneth Paltrow? Alec Baldwin?
Shall I be the first to demand background checks and fingerprinting of all those purchasing subway tokens?
What drugs was the woman taking?
We will be hearing from celebrities soon saying how trains are bad and need to be banned..people don’t kill people, trains do
Sounds like an Obama voter to me.
