What do you think the trainman is thinking. This photo should win a Pulitzer Prize.
That is awful. When I used to commute to NYC, I'd get off the train and then would have to take the A train to Park Avenue. There were so many people on the platform, and when I was up front I always worried that some nut was going to push me or someone else onto the tracks. It would have been so easy.
That's effed up beyond belief! I take the subway every day and stand close to the edge of the platform like everyone else. You just never know what lunatic is going to start something with you and push you over!!! That poor man!!!
He should have done more pull ups. It is his own fault
It looks like the driver is busy texting.
For New Yorkers,Isn't there a space under the platform where he could have slipped?
Yes, it is called my second home
I can't believe they don't have a guardrail.
Instead of taking a picture, the photographer should have tried to save the guy's life.
shit..the wife's gonna bitch at me for being late for dinner again
I thought the same thing to, but I heard on the news that he tried but was not strong enough so he used his camera with the flash to try and signal to the oncoming train to stop.
and shoot a perfect cover photo. he couldn't see to help the guy because he had $$$ signs in his eyes.
I don't buy that. Why the hell is the picture so perfect if he was just trying to signal the conductor?
He went into shock and had to be taken out of the station in a wheelchair.
There is no space under platforms. If you try to hide there the steel shoe that connects to the third rail will destroy you.
There is a channel between the tracks that is usually full of piss and oil. If you lie completely flat in that you can survive as the train goes over you.
The biggest fear is the third rail, touch that and your fried by 700volts.
I've been in a train that struck someone, it is one of the most disturbing things I've ever been through. It shakes the entire train.
Post freelance photographer R. Umar Abbasi — who had been waiting on the platform of the 49th Street station — ran toward the train, repeatedly firing off his flash to warn the operator.
“I just started running, running, hoping that the driver could see my flash,” said Abbasi, whose camera captured chilling shots of Suk’s tragic fight for his life.
The train slowed, but a dazed and bruised Han still wound up hopelessly caught between it and the platform as it came to a halt.
A shaken Abbasi said the train “crushed him like a rag doll.”
Dr. Laura Kaplan, a second-year resident at Beth Israel Medical Center who was also on the platform, sprang into action, taking off her coat, grabbing her stethoscope and rushing over to help the dying man.
“People were shouting and yelling when it happened, but then people ran the other way,” said Kaplan, 27.
“I heard what I thought were heart sounds,” she said, but Han never took a breath.
