A 39-year-old Sunnyside man was struck and seriously injured this morning when he jumped in front of an eastbound Long Island Rail Road train at the Woodside Station, according to the MTA.
The man, whose identify has not been disclosed, jumped from the station platform into the path of a Ronkonkoma-bound train at approximately 10:30 AM, according to the transit agency.
The man was removed from under the train with severe head and leg injuries and was unconscious when he was rushed by ambulance to Queens Hospital Center in Elmhurst, the police said.
The LIRR was forced to suspend eastbound service from Penn Station, except for the Port Washington Branch, for about an hour.
Not only is this story sad, its even sadder he wound up at Elmhurst Hospital.
why people choose the train? why they cant find another if your going to do it just do it at home why traumatize the train crew? people dont care if the service gets disrupted.
sad to see someone take his life
God give him peace.
Very sad. I wonder if the man was unemployed. People seem to take drastic measures, such as this, when deeply depressed.
