An experienced MTA worker is in the burn unit of New York-Presbyterian Hospital after a subway explosion several days ago. Suffering from severe burns on much of his body, he is the most critically injured of four transport workers harmed in the accident.
Even though it's been nine months, it seems like just yesterday when a Metro North train derailed in the Bronx, killing four and injuring 19. The wreck was supposed to spur safety measures in MTA and NYC transit, but there does not seem to be any improvement.
Friday's subway derailment in Queens injured dozens of people and terrified 1,000 passengers on the express F train.
A 61-year-old Brooklyn man is healing after a subway accident in Manhattan nearly took his life. The man, Cecil Williams, is legally blind and relies on his working dog, Orlando, to help him safely navigate New York City. Orlando had to go above and beyond the call of duty, however, when the man fainted and lost consciousness on the 125th Street platform.
A Metro Transit Authority (MTA) passenger train derailed in the Bronx on Sunday, killing 4 and injuring more than 60. The train accident occurred on a sharp curve where the Harlem and Hudson Rivers meet. Unfortunately, the MTA already knew the stretch of rails is dangerous, as a freight train derailed in the same location in July.
