It was his lucky day, sort of. According to the Post, a man suffering from high blood pressure fainted on the platform at the 42nd Street station late Sunday afternoon and collapsed onto the tracks, where he remained when a northbound 3 train came racing into the station. Multiple sources reported that the train did not strike the unidentified man, meaning he might have fallen into the gap between the rails. He was conscious when rescuers took him to Bellevue Hospital, where he will contemplate never returning to the subway.
