WEST VILLAGE, Manhattan – A woman had her legs amputated and a man was hospitalized after trains hit them at separate subway stations, less than an hour apart Thursday night, police said.
The NYPD said a 37-year-old woman is fighting for her life at a nearby hospital after landing on the roadbed before an incoming No. 3 train struck her at the 14th Street and Seventh Avenue stop at about 10:20 p.m. Police say she may have passed out prior to her fall.
About 40 minutes earlier, a 23-year-old man was found on subway tracks at the 14th Street and Seventh Avenue station, pinned between the platform and a northbound E train, according to police. He was removed by the FDNY and taken to Bellevue Hospital, where his condition is unknown.
