103rd station

A man was hit by a subway train at the 103rd street 1 train station around 12:50 a.m. on Monday, according to police and fire officials.

Details of the incident were still relatively thin. An NYPD spokesman said the man was run over by a southbound 1 train. There was no suspected criminal activity, he said. An FDNY spokesman said the man was transported to St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital and considered not likely to die. The MTA says the man is 78 years old.

Subway service was temporarily suspended between 96th and 137th streets.

Update, Feb. 19: The man who was hit, John Martinen, has died.

      Seems like a lot of incidents at this station within the last few weeks or so, no?

      First there was the man wielding the chain. Then, this past Friday afternoon, it appeared to me as if an ambulance crew had descended into this 103rd St./Broadway station. And now this man getting hit yesterday.
