My God! How many deaths will it take before they shut down that death trap?

What do you expect? He's from Jersey.

i wenr thru a brief but enturely intentional period of being homeless, during which I discovered that many churches in SoCal have thick shrubbery 6 to 10 feet in front of the church house- an entirely clandestine place to catch some sleep. anybody know if they do that on purpose? I've always wondered.

Well now I'm picturing the train humping his leg like a dog.

I knew a guy who got drunk one evening and decided to walk home from the bars. He wound up in a Walmart parking lot not far from his apartment, where he curled up under an upside-down shopping cart. While it was snowing. Luckily, some of his friends walked by and found him not long after.

Was the victim's name Mr McGregg?

This wouldn't have happened if he'd had his own train.

What is this thing with New Yorkers and injury by train? Is there some Ghostbusters type vibe luring people to do evil/stupid things in the subway?
 
2013-01-20 10:20:05 PM  
They made his leg walk home.
 
2013-01-20 10:20:37 PM  
Yikes. He would have been eaten by rats, anyway.

I prefer to sleep mine off while driving the school bus.

When you consider how many people use the subway every day these incidents are actually relatively rare. But it happens often enough, and when it does it hits the news.

The fun euphemism they use when announcing the delay in the station is "struck an unauthorized person on the tracks." At least on the LIRR.
 
2013-01-20 10:32:49 PM  
I wonder how long he was in there before his leg was run over. Like, did several trains miss him, then he rolled over in his sleep and exposed his leg? Or was it the first one?

Someone needs to make a gif out of this.

Actually, the reverse. These things are very, very common, and therefore dont make the news. 95% of the time its suicide, which doesn't get coverage. When someone is pushed, then it makes the papers. but now that everyone is 'aware' of this happening, every incident has been reported.

Last year, 146 people were struck by subway trains, with 47 killed...

so about 2-3 times a month someone kisses a train, but it goes largely unreported.
 
2013-01-20 10:43:22 PM  
For the last time now, if we don't outlaw subway trains then only the criminals will have subway trains.

Well yeah. I should have clarified that when I was saying it makes the news, I was excluding the times when the person who got hit did so on purpose.

It would be quite an accomplishment to get hit by subway trains in other cities like San Antonio, Jacksonville or San Diego

He used to sleep in the alley behind a dumpster.
But they fenced in the dumpster with a wall painted with murals and put big planters around it.

I can kind of relate. I was woken up by a bus driver a few weeks ago on my way home, but at least I made sure I was inside a vehicle before I passed out.

/bus driver dude was nice about it
//at least i chose a reasonable place to doze off and keep my limbs on
///only slept three hours the night before, probably not a great idea to stop at a bar to watch the BCS Championship while drinking all game on three hours sleep

The 26-year-old man from Elizabeth, NJ, tried to tuck himself under an part of the train platform where he wouldn't be noticed and dozed off, cops said.

They don't hire editors?

I once slept it off in the bushes in front of Pattee Library. It made for a decently warm and good hiding place. No one saw me until I woke up and was stumbling out VERY confused the next afternoon.

If only there was some substance that made a person feel good, but didn't turn them into an unbalanced moron who sleeps on train tracks. Oh wait.......
 
2013-01-21 02:06:41 AM  
It's incredible discovering where one can't sleep.

For example, in your own car, parked on the street. That blew my mind.

I think it's more that they actually have a subway and lots of people use it. In fact it's the world's busiest subway.

At least he lost that leg with some dignity.

YOU HEAR ME, POOPY THE DEAD HOBO, FORMERLY OF 125TH STREET? HAVE SOME FARKING SELF RESPECT. IF YOU HAVE TO SHIAT LIKE AN ANIMAL, DON'T DO IT BETWEEN THE CARS OF A MOVING TRAIN AND GET YOURSELF KILLED, STRANDING ME ON AN UPTOWN 5 TRAIN FOR AN HOUR.

This is just getting out of control.

You don't need a train or a subway....

Ride a bicycle.

Ban trains and subways.
