Young New Yorkers often resort to dangerous (and illegal) entertainment on the subway. One of these is train surfing, when a person does not enter the carriage, but rides holding an external handrail or standing on the roof of the carriage. On the morning of January 23, an adult man decided to repeat this trick. Unfortunately, it all ended in tragedy, writes New York Post.

The man, believed to be in his 50s, climbed onto the roof of a Q train with the intention of riding there before getting caught on a signal pole and hanging. The train eventually hit him, and the man died on the spot.

“He was about 50 or 60 years old, no longer a child... He climbed onto the roof of the train, and then his jacket got tangled in a signal pole and he ended up under the train,” said one MTA employee.

“The train dragged him 20 to 50 feet (6 to 15 meters),” another worker said.

The incident "severely disrupted" B and Q train service in Brooklyn, according to the MTA.

Clarice Henry, a longtime Flatbush resident, commented on the situation and echoed the MTA's widely used safety slogan: “Stay alive; ride inside the train.”

Deaths of “surfers” in the New York subway are not uncommon. The authorities urge people not to risk their lives and not to pull off this dangerous and illegal trick.
