An unidentified man was killed by a southbound 2 train at the Winthrop Street subway station in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens shortly before midnight on Saturday. An NYPD spokesman says the victim, approximately 40 years old, was fatally struck by a southbound 2 train at about 11:40 p.m. First responders found the man on the tracks unconscious and unresponsive, and he was declared dead at the scene.

According to the NYPD, a preliminarily investigation has determined that the man was urinating on the narrow catwalk just inside the subway tunnel, where he was struck and dragged by the train, "causing his demise." The Medical Examiner has not yet determined the exact cause of death.
