A man was struck by a train at the Fulton Street station in Lower Manhattan shortly after 8 a.m. today. An NYPD spokesperson said the man jumped in front of the train, and an FDNY spokesman said the man was rushed to Bellevue Hospital in serious condition.

The rescue effort and ongoing investigation caused the MTA to suspend A and C train service between Brooklyn and Manhattan, and halted C train service between Euclid Avenue in Brooklyn and 168th Street in Manhattan. There was no A service between Broadway Junction and Chambers Street in either direction, and Manhattan-bound A trains simply terminated at Euclid Avenue. Good thing nobody needs to get into Manhattan at 8 a.m. on a Tuesday morning.

The MTA now says service has resumed, but there are still significant residual delays. (Notify NYC apparently didn't get the memo.)


It was no picnic on the F train either, if that makes you feel any better.

UPDATE: One commuter says he was one of many stuck on a train between High Street in Brooklyn and Fulton Street in Manhattan for over an hour, until everyone on board was finally evacuated to another train.
