New York City police say an unidentified man, who was defecating between subway cars while riding on the Uptown 6 train, was killed when he fell onto the tracks.
The man was then struck by the train, reports WNBC-TV (video below).
Witnesses said the victim had been defecating between the cars when he fell just after 4 p.m. yesterday as the uptown 6 train was leaving the 125th Street station.
In a separate incident minutes later, police say a homeless man was seen climbing off the Bronx 5 express track after being struck and injured by the train.
Police told 1010 WINS that the homeless man was so drunk that he did not remember being on the tracks.
The homeless man suffered a broken pelvis and injuries to his buttocks and right leg. He was reported in serious, but stable condition at Harlem Hospital.
