New York man dies after getting caught in subway door and being dragged to his death

New York City is increasingly a dangerous place to live and work. Now another man has passed away after a freak accident on a subway car.

An unidentified 37-year-old man died Thursday after his pants got caught in a subway door and dragged him to his death, the Daily Caller reported. He was exiting the train late Wednesday night on Brooklyn’s Avenue M stop when police say he got trapped and dragged along the platform. 

The New York Police Department said it was possible his foot was also trapped by the door as the man could not free himself. The man was taken to Maimonides Medical Center by emergency personnel but succumbed to his injuries.

Although this was likely an accidental death, the subways are becoming more deadly for straphangers. Two people were killed in January at the Times Square station after being pushed onto the tracks by a homeless man.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which tracks such incidents, reported transit deaths have been rising over the past few years. Some, like the man who died this week, are the result of accidents.

However, MTA’s Track Trespassing Task Force said that 75% of so-called track intrusions are intentional. There were some 29 homeless encampments found in the subway tunnels, although they’re not places meant to be occupied by humans.

Moreover, crime on public transportation increased by 53.6% over the same time last year. This fact has coincided with an overall crime wave currently happening since 2020 in New York City, including violent crimes like felony assault, the New York Post reported.

This tragic death on the subway underscores the conditions city dwellers are now facing with a society that appears to be coming apart at the seams. Police are not allowed to enforce the laws while homelessness and crime run rampant. Though this time was an accident, it’s clear that the city has become a more dangerous place to be.
