NEW YORK: Police in New York City yesterday were hunting for a woman in her 20s suspected of pushing a man to his death under an oncoming subway train, the second such incident in less than a month.
The incident happened Thursday evening at about 8 p.m. (0100 GMT Friday) at a station on the number 7 line in the Queens borough.
The suspect — who was speaking to herself as she paced along the platform, according to witnesses — pushed the man as the train was pulling into the station. He apparently had his back to the woman and did not see her.
Police released surveillance camera video footage via Twitter showing a woman running from the scene. The victim was not immediately identified. His death was eerily similar to that of a 58-year-old man killed on Dec. 3 when he was pushed onto the tracks during a fight with a deranged man in a Manhattan subway station. The assailant has been charged with murder.
Several million people use the New York City subway system every day, but incidents of this kind are extremely rare.
