And you thought that ditch between the rails was there to collect water and muck (pictured here). Well, you should also know it is there to save your life.
An unidentified man fell onto the tracks today at Delancey Street while waiting for the F train. Luckily he fell in a way which allowed his body to fall into the cutout ditch between the rails. Lucky? Definitely, because an F train was just seconds away and ran over his body.
He was not injured from the train itself even though 3 cars rolled over him. He fit into that space in the tracks.
He was taken to Bellevue condition unknown but apparently alive.
