NEW YORK – A user of the New York City subway service was thrown onto the train tracks Sunday morning on a platform at the Atlantic Av-Barclays Center station in Brooklyn.
According to the authorities, the incident occurred on Sunday, around 11:30 am, when an unknown person approached the victim and pushed the rails for no reason.
Fortunately, the victim managed to climb back onto the platform and there were no trains at the time. The man suffered minor injuries, according to authorities.
So far there are no arrests and the authorities are investigating.
This would be at least the fourth incident in a week inside a platform of the subway.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for injuries from a blade, police said. His condition was not immediately known.

All crimes documented in the subway were up this year from last year, except grand theft, which has seen a 30% drop this year, according to NYPD crime statistics.
