For the second time in less than a month, a man was shoved to his death in front of a New York City subway train Thursday. Here’s ABC News and WSVN with more.

“Witnesses say the woman was talking to herself and pacing on the platform before pushing the man from behind and did not appear to even know the man.”

“Police say the man was hit by one car and then pinned by a second. His name has not yet been released.”


New York Police describe the suspect as a Hispanic woman in her 20s, heavy set, and wearing a ski jacket and tennis shoes.

You might remember — in early December, a man was shoved to his death in front of a train at a Times Square Station.

Gawker writes... “Maybe you New Yorkers should consider taking the bus for the rest of the year.”

So what’s the solution? Guard rails are one idea, but Bloomberg writes they could be far from realistic.

“The subway system uses several different trains with doors in different positions so there’s no uniform way to place the gates.”

The suspect in Thursday’s attack is still at large.
