New York City subway death: Man dragged to his death after leg gets stuck between platform, train in Brooklyn, NYC

MIDWOOD, Brooklyn – A man was killed after his leg was caught between a subway train and a dock in New York City on Wednesday night, and the train dragged him as he was leaving the station.

It happened at about 11:40 p.m. in Brooklyn.

Police said the death remained under investigation, but at this point, it appears the 37-year-old victim was getting off the Q train at Avenue M station when he somehow got stuck.

The man was then dragged to the platform.

Police said he screamed as he was dragged and a man who heard the screams ran for help.

The man, identified as Marcus Bryant, was eventually thrown behind the train in the tracks, where he was hit by a second train a few minutes later.

Bryant was initially thought to have grabbed his leg or trousers by the closing door, but the MTA has since clarified after watching the horrific video of the incident that it was not a problem with the door.

“We do not believe this is a door-to-door incident,” said Richard Davey, president of NYC Transit. “We believe he was caught between the platform and the train.”

Part of the investigation will include whether the pipeline followed the protocol to look at the platform before the train left the station.

“A conductor should have his head out the window when the doors close and look left and right for about 75 feet,” Davy said. “We have doors that are sensitive to catch gaps that are open, but again, this was not a door incident. Again, the protocol is to make sure these doors are working and … to have a duct that looks out. “The window. Or in some cases, we have a closed circuit television for the duct so that it can look up.”

Police said his left arm was amputated and his left leg partially amputated.

He was rushed to Maimonidis Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The investigation is ongoing.
