If only there are more MTA platform conductors to prevent future passenger falls, injuries and/or deaths on the tracks, especially when these stations are overcrowded such as the 74th Street-Broadway station. That’s the short term. In the long term, the MTA should invest in testing platform screening doors like in Seoul, Singapore and Hong Kong.


Ironicly I almost lost my left leg or even my life last night when I feel between the train and the platform. Feel bad for that lady. That would e 2 in one day.


Her name was Samiha Khan and she was my first cousin
She was not struck… she took her own life.
