In separate Monday incidents, three men jumped on uptown subway station train tracks to end their lives. Two of these tragedies occurred on the Upper East Side.
At about 8:00 a.m., a 47-year-old man jumped onto the tracks at East 86th Street and was struck by an oncoming 6 train.
The second incident took place on the Upper West Side about two hours later.
And at 6:40 p.m., officials told Patch that a 42-year-old man was seen jumping onto the tracks at East 63rd Street as a Q train approached.
These tragedies follow a grim discovery late Sunday when a man was found dead on the roof of an Upper East Side building.
