Naked man dangles from elevated track at Bronx station before falling 20 feet in front of horrified onlookers
BRONX, NEW YORK: Things are going crazy in New York City as a completely naked man was recently captured falling from an elevated track at Bronx station. The dramatic incident was filmed by a bystander, which shows the Black naked man dangling by one arm from an elevated 6 train station at Westchester and Metropolitan avenues in the Bronx.
“Look at this dude … Holy f–king. Homie acting a fool,” the onlooker says while recording the naked man from Parkchester street. The helpless man then collects all his strength, kicks his legs, and tries to hold the outside edge of the southbound tracks with his other hand as a train slowly approaches, stops, and then continues moving.
After a long struggle, the man lets go of his grip and drops some 20 feet to the pavement. As the man falls on the group, a startled teenager, holding a basketball, runs by the naked man and checks on him. “He dropped. He dropped. He dropped,” the videographer says before approaching the man “Yo, I’m gonna get the cops.” The video then shows the unconscious man lying on the pavement but with no visible injuries or any bleeding.
The NYPD stated that the tragic incident took place on December 23 and the unidentified man, who is in his 20s, was conscious and alert when rushed to Jacobi Hospital. Moreover, there were suspicions that the man at the Bronx Station was on substances. The dramatic video has gone viral on social media and netizens are blasting those who chose to record the incident instead of calling for help.
“Everything about this video shows that we live in a sick and failing society/culture. Not just the guy naked hanging from the subway, but also not a single bystander cared to do anything but video it. It’s just another day,” one commenter tweeted. Someone else tweeted “It might be dangerous to approach him. This is pretty much on him. 911 is as far as it goes with this one.”

However, this is not the first horrific incident that happened at Bronx station. Earlier this year, an NYC sicko smeared human feces on a 43-year-old woman's face at the Bronx subway station on Feb 21, on the southbound platform of the Wakefield - 241st Street station. The attacker was identified as Frank Abrokwa, a 37-year-old man, and was arrested on February 27. After his arrest, the attacker reportedly told the police that "s**t happens." But Abrokwa got a taste of his own medicine when an inmate threw boiling water on him, while he was in prison.
