Man, 28, randomly shoved onto NYC subway tracks: NYPD

Yet another disturbing incident of violence within New York City’s subway system, a 28-year-old man was randomly shoved onto the subway tracks at the Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall station in lower Manhattan on Wednesday morning, according to the police.

The unprovoked attack occurred around 10:15 a.m. on the southbound Nos. 4/5 platform. The assailant, without uttering a word, violently pushed the unsuspecting victim onto the tracks. Fortunately, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) were quick to respond, and the victim was transported to NYC Health+Hospitals/Bellevue in stable condition.

The attacker, described as a man in his 20s dressed entirely in black, managed to flee the station and remains at large as of Wednesday afternoon. This incident is just the latest in a series of random attacks within the city’s subway system, raising concerns about passenger safety and the need for increased security measures.

Only two weeks prior, a 30-year-old woman was similarly pushed onto the tracks, where she had to fight for her life after being hit by a departing E train. These incidents highlight the urgency of addressing safety issues in New York City’s public transportation system.
