This incident comes almost two weeks after another woman fell from a subway platform in Brooklyn, ABC7 reported. On Thursday, July 21, a pregnant woman became dizzy and fell onto the tracks at the 71st Street station in Bensonhurst.
In that earlier incident, bystanders jumped onto the tracks and were able to pull the woman to safety seconds before a Manhattan-bound D train entered the station, ABC7 added.
