Earlier today, I posted a service alert regarding train service. The reason stated in the service alert was a passenger “requiring medical assistance”. Now details have come out as to what exactly happened. Here is the story by Matthew Sweeney courtesy of AMNY:
A man was pulled to safety after suffering a seizure and falling onto the subway tracks at 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue after 12 p.m. today.
NYC Transit was able to shut down power to the third rail before a train could enter the station and the man was taken off the tracks. His condition was not immediately known.
