Man Fatally Struck by Train In Chelsea, FDNY Says
NEW YORK CITY — A man was struck and killed by a train at the 23rd Street Station in Chelsea during Friday's morning rush-hour, an FDNY spokesman said.
The straphanger, whose identity was not immediately released, was struck in the station, near Eighth Avenue, about 5:30 a.m., the spokesman added.
He was pronounced dead at the scene, he added.
As a result of the incident, northbound A trains were running local between Euclid Avenue and the Jay Street-Metrotech Station and then along the D line from West 4th Street up to 59th Street, according to the MTA's website.
The Chelsea subway incident came three hours after a northbound 2 train slammed into a man who was on the tracks of the 174th Street Station, at Southern Boulevard, in The Bronx, according to an NYPD spokesman.
He was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital in cardiac arrest and listed in critical condition, cops and fire said.
Both incidents were still being investigated Friday morning.
