Man Killed By L Train In Brooklyn

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 L Train 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!

[…] on the heels of the death of Brendan Mahoney by a Brooklyn-bound train comes word that the MTA is looking into installing sliding doors on […]

It’s unfortunate that the late Mr. Mahoney’s greatest contribution to NYC will ultimately be in reminding us that of all the things we may possess in our ever so brief life, that our very lives are the most important of them all.
