A woman fell in front of an oncoming subway train on Monday night and survived.
Emergency crews carried the woman out of the station on a stretcher and into a waiting ambulance.
The most shocking part was she suffered just a few cuts and bruises.
Stories of people falling on subway tracks aren’t necessarily uncommon. Usually they are tragic, but this one just happened to be miraculous.
Emerging from the scare of her life underground the unidentified 26-year-old woman was carried on a stretcher by police and emergency workers, just moments after being pulled alive from beneath a subway train.
Police said the woman fainted and fell off the platform onto the tracks, just as an Eighth Avenue-bound “L” train pulled into the station and rolled over her. Somehow she survived.
Emergency Medical Technicians who first reached her were shocked to find nothing more than a few cuts to her head. No serious injuries at all. She was rushed to Bellevue Hospital as a precaution.
Service was suspended for about 50 minutes while she was extricated. Service resumed around 8 p.m.
