NYPD Officer Hurt Helping Person Hit by Subway: Officials

A rider was hit by a subway train Sunday night in lower Manhattan and a police officer was hurt trying to help the person off the tracks, fire and MTA officials said.

The passenger was hit by an uptown A train at the Fulton Street stop in the Financial District at about 9:15 p.m., MTA officials said. After the person was pulled from the tracks, a police officer who arrived at the scene with EMS and other officers was trying to hoist himself back onto the platform and fell.

The officer was taken to Bellevue Hospital with rib injuries.

The rider was conscious and alert when emergency workers responded and was taken to Bellevue in critical condition, MTA officials said. The person is expected to survive.
