Woman Found Dead on Canal Street Subway Tracks


It was another bad weekend for subway fatalities. On Saturday, a man was hit by a D train at 72nd Street and Central Park West after trying to retrieve something he dropped on the tracks. Then on Sunday around 1:30 p.m., a woman was found lying on the southbound 1 line tracks at the Canal Street station. It’s unclear if she was hit by a train or passed out on the platform and landed in the trough. The victim, who’s believed to be in her thirties, was wearing leather pants and high heels. A police source tells the Post, “She looks like she was out clubbing.” She was pronounced dead at the scene and an autopsy is being conducted to determine her cause of death.
