A New York woman was walking down a subway platform in Manhattan minding her own business when a stranger came up behind her and randomly shoved her head into a train, sending her to the hospital in critical condition.

Which, in many places, would be a shocking tale. But in New York City, it’s just another day that ends in “y.”

New York City police are still looking for the man who they say simply strolled up to the 35-year-old victim as she was walking along the southbound subway platform at Lexington Avenue and 63rd Street around 6 a.m., grabbing her and shoving her head-first into a departing train. The woman was immediately taken to a local hospital and listed in critical condition with lacerations and spinal injuries.

The guy took off toward another exit and hasn’t been seen since. Anyone with information about the incident is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).

While the subway used to be a standard way to get around the Big Apple, recently riders have begun taking their lives into their own hands just by boarding a train - even in some of the “nicer” parts of the city. Just last Friday, a 33-year-old man told police he was riding the southbound D train in Manhattan when a man acting “erratically” approached him and slashed him in the face with a sharp object before fleeing the scene.

Meanwhile, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office is now prosecuting Daniel Penny for second-degree manslaughter after the ex-Marine placed Jordan Neely, another “erratic” man with a history of threatening and assaulting subway riders, in a chokehold on the F train in Manhattan. Prosecutors say that chokehold is what led to Neely’s eventual death.
