A Jackson Heights straphanger had a miraculous escape Thursday morning after falling onto a subway track and getting passed over by an oncoming train.

The 50-year-old man was standing on the platform at the Roosevelt Avenue/74th St. Station at around 9 a.m. when he dropped his phone onto the track, according to police.

The man leaned forward to see where the phone had landed and accidently fell onto the rail line. At that same time a Manhattan bound 7 train was coming into the station and passed over him. The man did not get hit by the train, according to the police.
