BROOKLYN — Investigators believe a man who was found seriously injured in the Fourth Avenue Station may have been riding atop a Brooklyn-bound F train when he hit his head Tuesday morning, an NYPD spokesman said.
The man, whose identity was not immediately released, was found hurt inside the station, near Fourth Avenue and 9th Street, about 2:20 a.m., NYPD and FDNY officials said.
He was rushed to Lutheran Medical Center in serious condition, officials said.
He may have been riding the subway car when his head smacked into a steel beam, a police spokesman said.
Tuesday's accident came about six days after a homeless man named "Grump" was killed while riding on top of a 6 train car in the Upper East Side.
"Subway surfing is simply one of the dumbest things you can do," MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz said at the time.
