A train fatally struck a woman after she jumped onto the tracks at Bay Parkway Station in Bensonhurst on Wednesday morning, police confirmed.
The distressed woman leapt in front of a northbound D train as it entered the station near 86th Street shortly before 9 am, according to authorities.
Witnesses, who described the woman as middle-aged, were horrified — describing the gruesome scene as the speeding train severed the woman’s leg.
“Just saw them removed the body four minutes ago,” said one Citizen app user. “It wasn’t a good sight.”
Emergency responders rushed to the scene and pronounced the woman dead at 9:20 am, and the investigation remains ongoing, according to police.
