Mother Falls To Her Death In Subway Station

I always hate sharing tragic stories as it never gets easier. The latest tragedy occurred last night when 22 year old Malaysia Goodson fell down the final staircase leading to the Bronx/Queens-bound uptown platform at the 7th Avenue station.

She had already walked down 5 flights of stairs with her 18 month old in a stroller before reaching the final staircase which contained 2 flights of stairs where she fell down from the very top of. As she was tumbling down, she shielded her baby daughter Rhylee from being hurt. Rhylee was treated at the scene & deemed okay while her mother was rushed to a nearby hospital where she passed away from the impact of her injuries.

I would like to offer my deepest condolences to the family & friends of Malaysia Goodson. I wish only the best for Rhylee from here on out.
