Police said a 32-year-old woman was found after she was hit and killed by a subway train bound for Brooklyn on Saturday when she was found standing between the moving trains.
The incident occurred before 1 am, when the No. 2 subway train entered the 96th Street/Broadway station. A witness told the police that he saw the woman smoking in between the cars. According to the police, when the train drove into the station, she lost her footing and fell between two cars before being hit by a subway. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The subway system is closed indefinitely from 1 to 5 am every day, so flight attendants can clean the subway cars deeply. This is a policy formulated by the MTA at the beginning of the pandemic.
The MTA prohibits cyclists from walking or riding between moving subway cars on the grounds that doing so is dangerous. They have been warning against the danger of walking between subway cars after a series of deaths related to deaths caused by moving subway cars falling onto the track in 201
On December 26 of that year, a 25-year-old man died while walking and falling between the subway cars of Chelsea 23 Street 1/2 train station.
NYPD did not provide statistics on the number of subway deaths related to falling between subway cars.
