Straphanger Jonathan Lynn sues MTA over incident where his arm got trapped in subway doors


It's every straphanger's nightmare: A man says he was severely injured when his arm got caught in the subway doors, trapping him outside the train as it started to move out of the station.


Jonathan Lynn, 32, broke his arm when he desperately yanked himself from the accelerating car just before smashing into the platform wall last August.


"I started jogging and screaming," he said of the harrowing seconds after his messenger bag and arm were snared in the G-train's doors inside a Brooklyn station. "It was the wall approaching that gave me the final push to do anything I could to get out."
