Following two subway-track suicides on Friday, two more people found themselves on the tracks over the weekend, one by accident and another in a tragic bid to recover a lost phone.

Then on Saturday night, another man got knocked onto the tracks while fighting with a mugger, but he managed to climb out before a train came. Let’s try a little harder to keep it on the platform.
