A 36-year-old man was hit by a train and killed while trying to aid the victim of a gang robbery in the New York City subway this month, according to reports.
The disturbing incident unfolded on New Year’s Day at the Fordham Road station in the Bronx.
A group of around 12 people approached a 38-year-old male waiting on a platform.
One of the suspects “displayed a knife” and the mob “began physically assaulting” the victim, the NYPD says.
“During the assault, the victim fell to the roadbed while an oncoming train approached,” authorities explained in a statement.
The Good Samaritan reportedly jumped onto the tracks in an effort to save the robbery victim, but met an even worse fate when he was “subsequently struck by the oncoming train, causing his death,” police said.
“The operator of train tried to stop as the man tried to climb back on the platform and he was struck by the train,” an NYPD spokesperson said.
Incredibly, the original victim was not hit but was treated at a local hospital for a fractured arm.
Infowars frequently documents a surge of violent crime in the New York City subway system.
