A man was reportedly decapitated by a train in Queens last night. According to police, the 45-year-old man was struck by a Queens-bound M train at the Seneca Avenue/Palmetto Street station around 9:20 p.m. According to the News, the victim was suicidal, and his head fell from the elevated tracks to the street below.
The Seneca Avenue station, located in Ridgewood, has previously been called one of the worst subway stations in the city. It will undergo renovations later this year, once ongoing work on the Central M station is complete.
This was the third subway incident to happen on Friday—one man was killed by a northbound 2 train in the Bronx, and another is in critical condition after being struck by an A train at 23rd Street and Eighth Avenue in Manhattan.
