Man Killed After Being Pushed onto Subway Tracks in Front of Oncoming Train During Fight

A man in Philadelphia died when he was pushed onto subway tracks and into the path of an oncoming train during a fight with another man Thursday night.

The death occurred blocks away from the University of Pennsylvania at the 34th Street SEPTA station in University City around 4:30 p.m., officials told NBC 10.

Disturbing footage captured the moment the two men argued with each other just steps away from the platform’s edge as the train is heard approaching the station.

A man wearing a dark coat and black hat lands two punches on the victim, sending the latter to fall and tumble over onto the tracks.

Horrified bystanders screamed as the Market-Frankford line train pulled into the station seconds later with the man on the tracks.

Medical officials pronounced the man dead at the scene.

“Oh my god, I feel so f–king terrible,” one woman shouts on video before police are seen frantically clearing out the scene.

Police confirmed they were reviewing the video as part of their investigation.

The victim has yet to be identified.

“We don’t know exactly what took place prior to that to initiate this, but it’s being investigated at this point,” Philadelphia Police Inspector Kpana Massaquoi told NBC10.

A person of interest was later taken into custody at 40th Street Station, Massaquoi said.

Massaquoi told ABC News Philadelphia the department does not currently have any witnesses despite the video showing multiple people around when the man was struck.

Police are asking any witnesses to come forward.

The killing is being investigated as a homicide, according to ABC News Philadelphia.

SEPTA suspended service on the Market-Frankford Line between 30th and 40th Street Stations for about two hours.

In September, a 66-year-old man was struck and killed by a SEPTA train when he walked on the tracks.

    Blame the Philadelphia DA for not prosecuting crimes. He was probably helped by Soros.

    So everyone is aware that’s it more dangerous, that police won’t enforce the laws holding people back. There is a history of people being pushed off subway platforms now.

    An argument with some mentally unstable person can end with someone getting pushed onto tracks.

    If DAs don’t care about laws and its their job to care, why would someone on that platform be a witness? So a month later that killer can push the witness off trying to get to work?

    Democrats just don’t see how appeasement kills. It starts with DAs.

    self defence against a guy 2x his size, who was bullying him, + they both fell, looks like an accident to me.

    I am beginning to wonder if the Blacks do not have killing in their blood. How could they keep doing heinous crimes like this and get away with it. People are not safe at all no matter where you are. You had better start giving them responsibility for their actions or this will never end. That is how much Biden really cares about the Citizens of this country being preyed upon.
