A commuter died in a freak accident after being dragged to his death when his foot was caught in a train door, it is reported.

Marcus Bryant, 37, was getting off the Q-Train at the Brooklyn, New York station on June 15 when his foot was caught between a train door and the platform.

It was 11:50 p.m. when Bryant tried to free his foot from the jammed door on the New York City subway, but as the train pulled away, he was carried away screaming.

Police say he was then thrown onto the tracks, but as he fell he was tragically struck by a train pulling into the station just minutes later.

However, authorities are unsure how he died as NYC Transit President Richard Davey said they are focusing their investigation on whether proper door procedures were followed.

Mr Davey, President of New York City Transit, said: “We do not believe this was a doorway incident.

“There was a tragic accident last night. Our hearts go out to the victim and his family.

“We are also here to find out what happened and to make sure it never happens again.

“A conductor should stick his head out the window as the doors close and look left and right about 75 feet. This is our normal protocol.”
