UPDATE: Conflicting newspaper articles report that the passenger who a train struck last night as it approached the Prospect Park West-15th Street station was allegedly intoxicated, standing between subway cars on a moving G train, and urinating when he fell onto the tracks. The train either ran over him or clipped him. His arm might have been severed.

The man and his girlfriend were transported to Lutheran Medical Center and New York Methodist Hospital to be treated.


In the F train station at Prospect Park West-15th Street, at about 8:45 tonight, a train struck a man and pinned him under it. He was given aid and is being transported to a hospital, with CPR in progress.
