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.
