You know the adage that some people never learn. Once again it has rang true & unfortunately this time it resulted in death. An unidentified man was killed by a Brooklyn-bound train at the Halsey Street station. Frank Rosario of the New York Post has more in this brief report:
A man was killed by a subway train in Brooklyn yesterday after he jumped down on the tracks — possibly to retrieve his dropped keys. The victim, who was not carrying identification, was struck at around 5:30 a.m. by a Canarsie-bound L train at the Halsey Street station in Bushwick, cops said. MTA employees told The Post that the man, who law-enforcement sources said had been intoxicated, had been trying to get his keys after they fell onto the tracks. He died at the scene.
My condolences to the victim’s friends & family. I just wish people will realize that they need to never step foot on the tracks as it is a very dangerous place. How many people have to die before it sinks in with everyone. Find an employee to help you get something off the tracks!
