A reader writes in to say that a man allegedly jumped in front of a Brooklyn-bound train at the 2nd Avenue subway station. He reportedly died at the scene.
Here is the dispatch.
Last night a man was killed by a Brooklyn bound F train. It was an apparent suicide. Riders waiting on the platform said he jumped in front of the oncoming train. Windshield glass had shattered. Conductor’s voice was shaken as he terminated the ride. I was on the train where the severed leg was seen on the track. It was gruesome and very, very sad.
There’s virtually zero information about this incident out there, other than a couple midnight tweets about how service resumed at this stop “after an earlier incident.” Drop a line if you know more.
If confirmed, this would mark the second death at this station in a week. Last Saturday, a man plunged to his death after walking between the cars.
