Brooklyn man is killed in subway

Brooklyn man is killed in subway

A 21-year-old Brooklyn man was crushed to death after falling in front of a subway train in Manhattan Sunday.

 

Stan Pales was found lying facedown after a southbound E train struck him at 6:55 a.m. in the 14th St. station, police said.

 

No foul play was suspected, and police said Pales was seen stumbling on the platform before he tumbled into the tracks.

 

Relatives and friends of the financial specialist crowded his parents' apartment yesterday, baffled over what happened.

 

"I can't believe he is gone," said Marie Russo, who described herself as Pales' "second mother."

 

Pales recently graduated from Kingsborough Community College, and landed a job at Mount Sinai Medical Center. He recently moved into an apartment in Homecrest, Brooklyn, with pal Keith Apman and loved to play handball at a local park.

 

"Everyone loved 'Stan the Man,'" said Apman, 22. "He loved to party, make money and spend time with his friends and family."

Hopefully he wasn't partying before going to get the train. If so, it is hard for a drunk to know the difference between catch the train, and catch the train.

 

Sad thing is I know people don't want to get involved, but if you see someone stumbling on the platform, walking to close to the edge, try to get them away from there, and summons help. I know this doesn't mean police will try to get them out until they are O.K to travel. They sometimes just say, well he ain't bothering anyone, then you get human chopped meat.

They won't do that as their judgement and coordination is impaired. Falling onto the tracks isn't on their mind. Getting the train is.

Well another thing anyone in that condition can try and do is make a habit out of always waiting near the front of the platform especially if they're impaired. If your going to fall into the tracks, at least give the T/O a chance to stop before you get turned into hamburger.

as much as we would like to keep people away from all types of harm, it's just not possible.

sometimes, as in this case, people have to be responsible for their own welfare.

and yes... i believe the story said he had been partying that night.

That's usually what it is, a hard night of partying and the wrong time to be riding the subway. Very sad. :)

Legislation and safety provisions are no cure for a lack of common sense.
