NEWS: Commuter killed after being pushed in front of moving NYC subway train in unprovoked attack



A commuter was struck and killed by a Manhattan subway train Monday after being shoved onto the tracks by an emotionally disturbed person in an unprovoked attack, according to police and sources.

The victim was pushed onto the tracks as a northbound 4 train was entering the East 125th Street and Lexington Avenue station in East Harlem just before 7 p.m., police sources said.

The train was unable to stop in time and fatally struck the individual, whose identity has not been released. William Miller

The train was unable to stop in time and fatally struck the individual, whose identity has not been released.

The person was pronounced dead shortly after and a suspect, described as an emotionally disturbed person, was taken into custody, according to the sources. Charges are pending.

Mental illness has played a role in half of the attacks on MTA workers in the subway system last year.

Of the 38 people charged with 41 separate assaults on transit system employees, 20 of them had documented psychological problems, according to a Post investigation.

Many of the individuals who assaulted the workers also have a criminal history.

Monday’s alleged shover was identified by sources as Carlton McPherson.

He has a prior assault arrest from October 2023, sources told The Post. The suspect was freed on bond and due back in court in July.

Service on the 4/5/6 trains was “severely disrupted” and rerouted to other tracks as a result, the MTA said.
