MANHATTAN — A man was struck by a subway train at an Upper West Side station early Sunday morning, authorities said.

The man, whose age was not known, was hit by a southbound 1 train at the 72nd Street station just before 2:40 a.m.

His condition was not immediately known, but authorities said he was breathing when he was taken to St. Luke's Hospital.

This is the third time in recent weeks that someone has been struck by a train at the busy station.

On Feb. 29, a 62-year-old man was struck and killed by a train after suffering a dizzy spell, authorities said.  Earlier, it was believed that he had committed suicide.

Later in the day, another man, who appeared to be intoxicated was hit by a train and listed in stable condition, despite having serious injuries.
