A Bronx man who leapt in front of the 2 train in the Bronx yesterday afternoon was knocked from the train back onto the platform and struck a bystander. 42-year-old Louis Schmulson, who reportedly weighed around 300 pounds, jumped in front of the train in an apparent suicide attempt. "I heard a scream and then a crunching sound," a witness told the Post, "It was gory—blood on the platform and on the street."
Schmulson was pronounced dead at Jacobi hospital around 3 p.m. Schmulson worked at a phone store near the Pelham Parkway station where the incident occurred. The female bystander who was hit by him suffered non-fatal injuries.
