An elderly Haredi man was killed after slipping onto the train tracks as a train moved into the station, according to emergency workers in New York.
Pinchas Tzitrenzon, 75, who was waiting for a train at the train station platform located on New Utrecht Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway, fell on the tracks and was run over by a train that entered the station.
Tzitrenzon was waiting for a Manhattan bound train when he suddenly slipped and fell onto the tracks before dozens of horrified passengers. Tzitrenzon tried to climb his way out, but the oncoming train quickly ran him over. Emergency workers arrived and he was declared dead at the scene.
Volunteers of the Chesed Shel Emes organization, arrived at the scene to prevent the medical examiner from taking the body.
