Man killed on New York subway after clothes get caught in train door

After his clothes were caught in a subway train, he was dragged onto the tracks by a New York train.

The death of the 20-year old on Monday follows that of David Martin, 32. Martin was apparently pushed in front a train and broke his collar bone.

Lamale McRae (41), an ex-convict, was taken into custody for the attack.

A 26-year old man sustained leg injuries last week when he was pushed into front of a train, apparently again at random.

An unidentified homeless man was taken into custody, suspected to have attacked him.

New Yorkers are worried about violence in the subways, due to a rise in crime.

Kathy Hochul, the state governor, is up for reelection in three days. Eric Adams, New York City mayor, has announced plans to increase the number police officers who patrol the subway system.

“We are all fighting for our city, but there is more to be done. Adams, who was criticised for his handling of the subway attack attacks on Sunday, stated on Twitter that they are investing in mental health services and more subway officers.

Michelle Go, 40, died in January after she was pushed into a train at Times Square.

Her murder was attributed to an increase in anti-Asian attacks on US cities.

A gunman opened fire on a subway car in April, setting off smoke bombs that wounded more than 20 people. The suspect was captured the next day.

According to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, cameras will be installed in all subway cars in New York.
