In the third NYC subway-related death since early December, a woman has fallen to her demise after stumbling around on the platform near Times Square.

The victim–who hasn’t been identified–was in her early 20′s and died from her injuries after falling in front of the train at 34th Street and Seventh Avenue. Police haven’t confirmed whether drugs or alcohol might have been involved. The incident occurred around 5 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

According to Huffington Post, subway deaths aren’t all that unusual; however, a string of bizarre incidents involving New York’s transit system has left officials puzzled of late. Early in December, Ki-Suk Han was pushed to his death in front of a train, and the incident was captured on film by a photographer who happened to be standing on the platform. The story and accompanying photo ran on the cover of the New York Post the next day, much to the dismay of many who thought it was disrespectful to the man’s family.

On December 27th, 31-year old Erika Menendez pushed a man in front of a train in Queens and later confessed that the murder was a random hate crime.

“I pushed a Muslim off the train tracks because I hate Hindus and Muslims ever since 2001 when they put down the twin towers I’ve been beating them up,” Menendez told officials in her statement.

    Why don’t they put up automatic gates that open when the train arrives? That seems to be the easiest solution to this ongoing problem…

      They have those in some European countries as well as Japan. Unfortunately I don’t see Bloomberg’s greedy self budgeting for gates, I hope i’m wrong, something needs to be done.
