Train Spares 18-year-old Girl Who Fell Off Harlem Subway Platform While Dancing (Update)

She got her groove back — then fell on the tracks. An 18-year-old girl dancing on a Harlem subway platform tumbled onto the tracks early Friday, but miraculously escaped serious injury when a train rolled over her, police said.

The teen was strutting her stuff on the platform of the 125th St. station on St. Nicholas Ave. when she lost her balance and plunged onto the tracks about 3 a.m., officials said.

Moments later an uptown D train entered the station and the motorman hit the emergency brakes.

The front of the train rolled over the victim but did not make contact with her, officials said.

First responders managed to pull the victim out from under the train and took her to Mount Sinai-St. Luke’s Hospital for treatment for a head injury from the fall.
