In an incident reminiscent of last month's subway shove that killed a Queens father of two, a woman pushed a stranger onto the NYC subway tracks, where he was killed by an oncoming train.
The victim was waiting at the elevated 40th Street Station on the 7 Line in Queens, authorities say. The woman, described as 5-foot-5, Hispanic, weighing about 190 pounds and between 20 and 25 years old, shoved the man and immediately fled the scene. Witnesses say she also has short, dark, curly hair.
“This lady, she just pushed the guy on the tracks. Then she ran away. I was screaming and closing my eyes,” said witness Tenzing Tegeng, 21, one of five people on the platform.
“I could see him, and I could see a train coming. And I couldn’t do anything. I was so helpless. He was trying to get up. It was so fast,” she said.
Law enforcement sources said the lady said nothing as she pushed the man on the tracks. It is unclear whether she had any connection with the victim, or if they had interacted before. Police might be able to identify him from his wallet and laptop, which were found at the scene.
“He looked shocked. He didn’t scream,” Tegeng said.
The suspect was said to be acting strange before the incident, mumbling to herself on a bench and pacing the platform. After she pushed the victim, she fled down the stairs to Queens Boulevard.
Police have not apprehended the suspect as of yet.
Makes you scared to even ride the subway anymore! These senseless acts have to stop.
