Bloody Saturday in New York subway

What ‘s going in New York City’s subway?

This past week four deaths in subway odd accidents in less of 24 hours, one in Brooklyn, one in Queens and two in Manhattan.
Was it a black Saturday or just a coincidence.
The first fatal subway accident occurred at 2 a.m. in Elmhurst, Queens when a  man was found unconscious at the elevated Elmhurst Ave. station on the R line. He was rushed to the hospital, but died an hour later. Authorities believe he may have slipped and fell down the stairs.
At about 8:30 a.m. in Manhattan, a man died near the 14th St. station when an L-line train struck him inside a tunnel. Investigators are unsure why the 22-year-old Long Island man was wandering around inside the tunnel.
The third fatality occurred on the A line a little after 4 p.m. in Brooklyn at the Nostrand Avenue station. The victim died when struck by the A train and police do not know why the man was on the railway.
The final more gruesome death occurred at the Sixth Ave. station at around 10 p.m. when as in a horror movie some Manhattan passenger saw a decapitated head lodged between the platform and the train. Authorities are still investigating the accident and searching for the body’s victim.
Police say none of the victims were related.
