Man pushed onto subway tracks in Lower Manhattan

Just one week after Michelle Go was shoved to her death, another person was pushed off of a subway platform in New York City, but this time, the victim is expected to survive.

The NYPD says that at around 11:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, a man standing on the southbound platform at the Fulton Street subway station was pushed onto the tracks as a southbound C train was entering the station.

The train was able to stop in time and the victim was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital with minor injuries to his leg.

Investigators say the suspect fled the scene, appeared to be in his 20s and was last seen wearing a camouflage jacket, but have yet to make an arrest.

Last week, a homeless man shoved Michelle Go onto the tracks in Times Square, killing her when she was struck by the oncoming train.

According to the NYPD, 461 felony assaults and eight homicides were reported throughout the subway system last year.

It’s a surge the city hasn’t seen in 2.5 decades. 

Mayor Eric Adams has doubled down on his plan to combat subway crime and homelessness.

"We should not wait for someone to carry out a dangerous action when we know they are at this station in the first place. Immediately, when you see a dangerous person there, mental health professionals will be deployed and that person will receive the proper care and be removed from our subway system," Adams said Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union.

The mayor has already deployed more uniformed cops to the system, but some transit advocates and elected officials are now calling for the installation of platform barriers, which are already used in Europe, Asia, and on the JFK Air Train.

The MTA says they’re currently being considered, despite "complexities."

The agency is looking into additional safety measures to address the uptick in crime and plans to address concerns at its monthly committee meetings.
