Lazard Intern - A NYC Woman Killed After Falling On Subway
At Grand Central Terminal, a woman named Lazard Intern fell onto the tracks and was tragically struck by a New York City subway train, according to authorities on Wednesday.
Shortly before 11 p.m. on Tuesday, a No. 7 train was approaching, and the 20-year-old lady somehow fell onto the tracks, according to a police spokesperson.
According to the authorities, the train driver was unable to brake in time to save the victim. At the scene, she was pronounced deceased.
In an effort to reduce fatalities on the tracks, transit officials earlier this year unveiled a plan to construct safety barriers in three of the city's subway stations. However, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority claimed that just 41 of the 472 subway stations could be modified with the barriers as of the present.

Around 9:42 p.m. on Tuesday, the woman fell to the tracks as a train headed for Hudson Yards entered the station. She was plowed over by the train without stopping, and according to the authorities, she died immediately.
It's unknown what caused the woman's tragic slip onto the tracks, despite the fact that witnesses saw it happen.
The woman, according to police, recently relocated from California to New York. Her identity was not immediately made public. Police reported that a 20-year-old woman Lazard Intern was killed after falling onto the tracks in front of a subway train at the No. 7 station under Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan.
Computers automatically operate the communications-based train control technology to operate trains on the No. 7 line. Although they no longer carry a "dead man switch" that activates the emergency brakes anytime an operator lets go, train operators still sit at the front of the trains.
