Three Men Jump on Train Tracks in Separate Monday Incidents

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.
