A beautiful young 21 year old New York woman fainted and fell onto subway tracks on the Upper East Side platform at 77th Street/Lexington Avenue station. She revived, saw a train bearing down and tried to get to safety but couldn’t do so. She was “cut in half” according to this report below. The station was filled with school children.
Diallo, a native of Ghana, had been studying at Borough of Manhattan Community College and dreamed of becoming a doctor, according to family members.
She had just celebrated her birthday last Thursday.
The accident horrified straphangers on the packed Bronx-bound train.
“I heard the thump, the train hit something and it stopped,” said passenger Nicole Katzender, 26, of Queens.
Sandra Pereira, 47, also of Queens, described a chaotic scene in the tragedy’s aftermath.
“Everyone was waiting for the train, and they started screaming,” she said.
