Woman Saved At Manhattan Subway Station

This morning was an eventful one at the 14th St-Union Square station on the Lexington Avenue lines after a woman was pushed onto the tracks of the Bronx-bound & . Stephanie Pagones of the New York Post has more:

Good Samaritans rushed to bring a woman to safety after a stranger shoved her onto the subway tracks Thursday morning, according to police and witnesses.

The woman was standing on the uptown 4- and 5-train platform at Union Square subway station around 10:45 a.m. when a stranger pushed her — sending her falling onto the tracks, police and witnesses said.

Witness @buhlreports took to Twitter, where she noted how the man “pushed” the victim and then “ran away.”

Staphangers rushed to the woman’s aid before she came into contact with any oncoming trains, police and the witness said.

Thankfully the woman was rescued by the quick thinking actions of some good samaritans & transit personnel. Hopefully she will mentally recover from the traumatic incident. Lastly I hope the person responsible for this crime gets caught & punished to the fullest extent of the law.
