At the Union Square station yesterday, a man was hit by an approaching southbound 4 train. The Post reports that he had been swaying on the platform but managed to survive (possibly because the train was slowing down?). Oh, and it's "unclear whether the injured man was under the influence of alcohol or drugs." That could be why he was swaying - but people love standing near the edge and who hasn't been overcome by smells and heat in the subways? At any rate, he's very lucky.
