A 66-year-old woman was shoved into a subway train by a stranger at a station in Jackson Heights on Sunday.

We all need to be vigilant while waiting on the subway platform. This should be at anytime – day or night. Try to stand a foot or two back from the yellow line. And DO NOT lean overtosee if the train is approaching. Check the status that is posted at many stations or your MTA phone app. Guard your bags, wallet, pocketbook, etc. so you are not easy prey.
