NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say a young woman stumbling around on a Manhattan subway platform not far from Times Square fell onto the tracks and was killed by a train.
The accident happened at around 5:00 am on New Year's Day at the No 2 line station on 34th Street and Seventh Avenue.
That's one stop from where revellers gather in Times Square to see the ball drop.
Police say the victim was in her 20s. Her name wasn't immediately released.
Subway deaths are common in the city. Last year, according a report in the Daily News, there was about a fatality a week.
But track deaths have been getting extra scrutiny in recent weeks after two men were shoved to their deaths in December.
