NYC woman shoved into moving subway train is ‘fighting for her life,’ officials say

New York City police are searching Thursday for a person of interest wanted for allegedly shoving a 30-year-old woman into a moving subway train in Manhattan, leaving her now “fighting for her life,” officials say. 

The incident happened around noon Thursday at the Fifth Avenue/53rd St station and the individual being pursued, identified as 39-year-old Sabir Jones, is known to law enforcement, NYPD Chief of Transit Michael Kemper told reporters at the scene. 

“As a train was pulling out of the station, she was pushed, causing her head to strike the moving train. The train departed the station and then she fell onto the tracks,” Kemper said. “Fortunately, there were eyewitnesses and good Samaritans that were on that platform that helped her up back off the roadbed onto the platform.” 

Kemper said the victim was taken to a local hospital for head trauma and is now in critical condition after undergoing surgery. 

 

The New York City Police Department has released images of Jones in its search for him.
