What is going in in NYC. I have never heard of incidents like this in other major cities with subway systems.
I remember one of these in Phila, probably around 20 or 25 years ago. I used to commute by train there all the time, and that incident taught me to always be aware when I'm on the platform.
It happens in Toronto occasionally, IIRC the last such incident was about 20 years ago. Same scenario- a mentally disturbed individual shoved a woman without warning. Fortunately there was no train and she got away OK.
“I have never heard of incidents like this in other major cities with subway systems.”
While these stories are horrible, they reinforce my believe that NYC is a dirty sh!thole that should be avoided at all costs. I’m 10 miles west of NYC, and haven’t been there in a over a decade; I spend too much money trying to get away from the denizens of that toilet.
