New York Subway Passenger Gets Stuck Between Train and Platform

A woman fell and became wedged between a subway car and the platform in downtown Manhattan on September 18. The accident took place around 8.30 am at the Fulton Street station in lower Manhattan, on a platform serviced by the 4 and 5 subway trains.

Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesperson Andrei Berman told Storyful that the situation was first reported at 8.31 am, and by 8.45 am service had been restored.

Straphanger Andrew Uzzo, who captured the aftermath and shared video with Storyful, said the passenger appeared to have fallen and could not get out of the space between the platform and subway car.

A spokesperson for the New York Fire Department told Storyful that the woman hurt her leg. She was transported to a local hospital with “non-life threatening” injuries. Credit: Andrew Uzzo via Storyful
