Around 7:30am, a report of a person struck by a train went out across police radios.
The incident occurred around 116th Street & Broadway on the Uptown 1 line. The thing we find odd is the report that the person was dead on arrival between 116th and 125th. That makes it sound like the person may have been in the tunnel when they were hit. That’s just an assumption.
Typically, people that jump or fall off the platform die right there. There’s no report of the bodies being found “between” stops.
However, I suppose it is possible that he person was hit and dragged as the train pulled out of the station.
The incident tied up trains for hours right in the heart of rush hour. Beyond that, not too many details are available. That makes me think that it was probably a homeless person living in the tunnels that got hit.
