Stranger pushes man under subway train

- A man was pushed by a stranger onto subway tracks in Manhattan on Sunday.  It was the second subway push in less than a week.

The latest incident took place at the 18th St.-Seventh Ave. station in Chelsea around 7:20 a.m.  Police say the man was found under a subway car with a laceration to his foot and a contusion to his head.  Paramedics took the 54-year-old victim to Bellevue Hospital but he was expected to survive.

Later in the day, Aaron Clary, 25, of Newark, New Jersey turned himself in to police in connection with the incident.  He faces assault and attempted murder charges.

Northbound "1" line trains bypassed the station while police investigated.

This incident came six days after a 49-year-old woman died after a woman pushed her in front of a northbound "1" train in Times Square.  Melanie Liverpool, of Queens, was arrested in connection with that incident.
