Second person survives fall on subway tracks

For the second time in as many days a man was run over by a subway car yesterday and survived.


Just before 5 a.m. a southbound (G) train was pulling into the Metropolitan Avenue station in Williamsburg when the operator saw a man lying in the trough between the tracks, transit officials said. The first car passed over the young man before coming to a halt.


The man, whose name was not released by officials, was taken to Woodhull Hospital where he was listed in stable condition with a head injury. It was not clear why he was on the tracks. A transit spokesperson said initial reports stated that the 22-year-old man may have been intoxicated.
