A woman was pushed onto the subway tracks in Brooklyn following an early-morning dispute, police said.
A Good Samaritan came to the aid of the shove victim, who suffered minor injuries, cops said. It was one of two incidents Saturday where New Yorkers stepped up to help someone who faced doom on the subway tracks.
The drama unfolded shortly after 3:20 a.m. Saturday, when three women were walking down the stairs at the Rockaway Avenue station and began arguing on the platform of the northbound C line, authorities said.
The victim, 38, was allegedly pushed onto the train tracks by one or both of the people she was arguing with, cops said.
Luckily no trains were entering the station at the time of the incident. A good Samaritan helped the victim off the tracks and back onto the platform, authorities said. The two other women ran off, police said.
The victim was taken to Kings County Hospital with “pain, bruising and a wrist injury” and is in stable condition, an NYPD spokeswoman said.
Police did not immediately say whether the women knew each other or what fueled the dispute.
Later Saturday a man who was waiting for an inbound Queens train at the Bowery station platform on the Lower East Side fell ill, and ended up falling onto the tracks, a witness told The Post.
“I saw him fall over…he was just standing there,” said Deante Taylor, 33, who sprung into action while three others yelled “help! help!” and left the station, presumably to get assistance.
Taylor said he lifted the “heavy” man to safety as “the train was on the way in.”
He said the train managed to stop.
“That was a rough one,” Taylor said, adding first responders arrived in a matter of minutes.
The FDNY reported it got the call at 9:53 a.m. and took one person to Bellevue Hospital. The NYPD did not immediately have information regarding the save.
