Woman Dies Under Wheels Of A Train
An still-unidentified Hispanic woman, reportedly a resident of a Far Rockaway half-way house apparently committed suicide at about 6:53 p.m. on May 19 by jumping off the A Train platform at Beach 36 Street into the path of an oncoming subway train. Local sources said that the woman ran down the platform and “purposefully” jumped onto the tracks. The line was closed for more than two hours as police investigated and removed the body from the tracks. The city’s medical examiner will perform an autopsy early next week, and sources say that neither her identity nor the official cause of death will be available until the autopsy is completed.
