A woman waiting on the platform for a Brooklyn subway lost one of her legs when she fell onto the tracks and was struck by an oncoming train.
Around 7:10 p.m. on Tuesday, the victim was waiting on the B and Q platform at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclay's Center station when she became dizzy and fell into the subway’s path, authorities told the New York Daily News. A northbound train then hit her.
The woman, who had a leg severed by the train, was rushed to Bellevue Hospital in serious condition, the Daily News added.
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.
