And this just keeps happening.
A man was fatally struck by an L train last night in Brooklyn. According to police, the incident happened around 9:15 p.m. at the DeKalb Avenue station near Wyckoff Avenue, on the northbound L train tracks. The man was found about 200 feet past the station on the tracks, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Neither police nor FDNY could confirm how the man ended up so far away from the station. Last month, an intoxicated man who had crawled under the platform to “sleep it off” had his leg amputated after he was struck by a train in Queens. This is the seventh subway fatality of the year so far.
At least one person claimed the victim had jumped in front of the train, which the NYPD could not confirm. They took the Vine below of the scene last night.
