Does this happen often in New York? We'll have them relatively often.

I think there was a recent statistic that at least 2 people fall on the tracks daily.

There's a difference, you have people that slip and fall on the tracks, then you have people who get hit by trains while standing on the platform, and then you have others who get run over on the tracks.
Step up or Shut up!!!
