Queens, NY (April 30, 2019) – Two separate incidents that occurred only hours apart on Monday night, April 29th, have two men fighting for their lives. Police stated that the first accident happened at approximately 11:00 p.m. at a Queens train station and the second injury took place about two hours later at a station on the Upper West Side, but that both accidents were nearly identical in nature.
According to authorities, an unidentified 32-year-old man was walking between cars on a train that was departing the Queens station when he fell and suffered serious injuries. The accident on the Upper West Side also involved an unidentified man who had been walking between cars when he slipped and fell, subsequently landing under the wheels of a train. Emergency medical crews were quickly called to both scenes, where each man was promptly hospitalized.
Officials were able to confirm that the 32-year-old victim is likely going to need amputations in order to save his life. The other man suffered multiple bone fractures, internal bleeding, and a deep gash to his head. Investigations into both incidents are likely ongoing at this time.
