News Man on tracks dodges train while looking for phone By AMNY email@example.com March 25, 2014 7:07 PM Print Share fbShare Tweet Email A man cheated death on the subway tracks this morning in Brooklyn just to grab a cell phone, according to the MTA. Around 10:30 a.m., a man climbed onto the tracks of the 105th Street L train station in Canarsie to recover his cell phone. The train rolled into the station and on top of him. He was able to get out from beneath the train and walked away, refusing medical attention, MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz said. Last year, 53 people died from being struck by a train.
