Man Hit By Train In Lower East Side

The subway tunnels continue to be a place of misfortune as a man was hit by a Queens-bound F Train in the Lower East Side. Aliza Chasan of Pix 11 has more:

A 31-year-old man was struck by a northbound F train on Wednesday afternoon, police said.

He was hit in a tunnel near East Broadway and Canal Street around noon, an NYPD spokeswoman said. It was not immediately clear what he was doing there.

The man suffered a laceration to the head and is not likely to die, police officials said.

F train service ran along the A line for about an hour while emergency officials transported the man to the hospital and investigated the scene. Service resumed around 1 p.m.

No additional identifying information is available for the victim.

First & foremost I am glad that the injury suffered was not fatal. However with that, I do question what was the man doing inside the tunnel. Was he a homeless man? I am assuming not as no mention was made of it. Perhaps it was someone doing urban exploration which is quite popular in the NYC Subway in places passengers should not be.
