A 55-year-old man died this morning after jumping from the subway platform at the 82nd Street station in Jackson Heights this morning.
Several people observed the man jump off the platform a little after 8 am on the Manhattan-bound side of the 82nd Street station on the 7 line, above Roosevelt Avenue.
Officers from the 115th Precinct and NYPD Transit District 20 responded. EMS pronounced the man dead at the scene.
Maybe he didn’t kill himself. Maybe he was intoxicated and fell.
God have mercy; so much pain in the world. 55 years old? Who knows what’s going on with everyone around us. Be kind to each other, and with yourself, too.
A lot of people are offing themselves on the transit system in the past year.
Scrape him up and let’s go
You’re an awful human being
