A woman lost her left foot last night after she was struck by a southbound F train at Bryant Park/42nd Street. Investigators believe it's likely that she jumped onto the tracks, an NYPD spokesperson tells us.
FDNY responded to the F train platform at 10:02 p.m. and transported the 58-year-old victim to Bellevue Hospital with "leg trauma." Her identity has not been released. While an NYPD spokesman was only able to confirm an injury to the women's left foot, the News reports that the victim's left foot was cleaved off by the oncoming train. Despite her injuries, the victim reportedly remained conscious.
As a result of the incident, D, F, and M trains were running with delays early this morning. Regular service has since resumed.
