Men Killed in NY Subway: Subway Workers Discover One

In what is being described as one of the most horrific days of unrelated transit deaths, four men were killed on Saturday, January 21 in the NY city area.
Around 2am on Saturday, a man believed to be in his 60's was found unconscious near the Elmhurst Ave Station at Broadway in Queens.  It is believed that he slipped and fell down the stairs, hitting his head.  He had been bleeding from the mouth and was immediately transported to Elmhurst Hospital Center where he later died.
Brian O'Mara, a 22 year old man from Long Island was struck by a train in a tunnel near the 14th street station of the L train.  It is unclear why the man was wandering through the tunnels between stations, but friends reported being out with him the night before.  Mr. O'Mara did not survive the 8:30am accident.
Later that same afternoon in Brooklyn, an unknown man was struck and killed by a train.  The 4:30pm accident happened on Fulton St. near the Nostrand Ave Station.  It is reported that people fall onto the tracks about twice a week but are able to get out of the way of oncoming trains.
Completing this day of unimaginable coincidental deaths, a man’s head was wedged between a train and the platform at 10pm.  Straphangers working in the subway station discovered the man at the 6th Avenue subway station.  Information regarding how the man’s head could have gotten stuck was not available at press time.
