Only in New York.

Wild video shows an impatient straphanger dragging the limp body of a drugged-up commuter off a subway car in an effort to jumpstart service.

The crazy clip, posted on X Friday, shows the person being dragged onto the platform at the 59th Street and Lexington Avenue station on March 7 as a crowd of commuters watch in horror.

William Parker originally posted the video on the day of the incident, but it has since gone viral. He claimed the man moved the person from the train “in hopes that we moving.”

He also shared footage showing the moments before, when a man in a green jacket was seen on the ground with his hand slumped over the bench.

“THIS [IS] WHY LIFE IS TRASH HERE, U WORK ALL DAY AND THE ONLY TRAIN THAT TAKES U HOME IS THIS, AND NOW IT’S OUTTA SERVICE,” Parker captioned the video.

After the unidentified man drags the unconscious man out of the train, another man could be seen checking the body for a pulse.

“He’s not dead, he’s still alive,” the man says.
