Harlem subway train stops short of running over man who fell onto tracks
A No. 6 train stopped on a dime in Harlem Monday and avoided running over a man who had fallen onto the tracks, officials said.
The train entering the station at 125th Street and Lexington Avenue was able to hit the brakes just before striking the unidentified man on the tracks, the MTA said Monday.
It's unclear how the man ended up there, but the train's operator stopped about a full car length's short of running him over, according to the MTA.
Once the subway came to a full stop, fellow straphangers pulled the man to safety, and he walked out of the station without incident, the agency said.
