NYPD: Man struck by train in Times Square station


Service on the N, Q and R lines is disrupted after a man was struck by a train in the Times Square-42nd Street station Tuesday morning.

An NYPD spokeswoman said witnesses reported the man, who was not immediately identified, was pacing up and down the platform before he jumped in front of an oncoming train around 9:17 p.m.

There is no word yet on his condition, according to police.

N, Q and R trains are bypassing the Times Square-42nd Street station, according to the MTA. N and Q trains are running local between 34th Street-Herald Square and 57th Street-Seventh Avenue, and some Q trains are terminating at Prospect Park.

Customers should expect delays on all three subway lines, the MTA said.

The incident comes just days after a woman was pushed in front of a southbound 1 train at the Times Square-42nd Street station. The victim, Connie Watton, of Queens, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The woman accused of pushing Watton, Melanie Liverpool-Turner, has been charged with second-degree murder, cops said.
