The horror at New York’s subway stations is seeming rather unending with another gory fatality on Monday night. 

In the latest incident, a 48-year-old man identified as Heriberto Quintana was fatally shoved in front of an oncoming Queens subway train during Monday night’s rush hour after he accidentally bumped into another rider. With this, the pusher’s cell phone dropped onto the tracks at the Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue 74th Street station just before 4:45 p.m.

The 50-year-old man who was bumped yelled at the other man to retrieve his phone from the tracks, sources said. The rider refused and the pair got into a scuffle, and the man who lost his phone then pushed the victim down to the tracks, in front of an oncoming Jamaica-bound F train.

Quintana was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Fellow subway riders who witnessed the horrific incident tried to hold down the suspect, but he escaped and fled on another train, according to the MTA worker. 

Police were able to apprehend the suspect and take him into custody. He had not been charged with any crimes as of Monday night. 

This fatal shove is the ninth homicide in the city’s subway system this year, breaking 2021’s 25-year high of eight murders within the system.
