A man jumped in front of an oncoming 2 train at the 72nd Street subway station this morning.

It happened at about 10:00 a.m. and police told Patch that the man appeared to be in his fifties.

The conductor was unable to stop in time to avoid hitting the man. He was taken by EMS to Mount Sinai Morningside where police tell us he was later pronounced deceased.

The MTA announced train delays following the incident.

At about 1:12 p.m., the MTA announced that southbound 2/3 trains were delayed again because of an individual in need of medical assistance at the West 125th Street station.
