Gothamist – Yesterday, a homeless man suffered a fatal head injury after subway surfing atop a 6 train in Manhattan. That 45-year-old man, who police haven’t yet identified, climbed between cars and atop the downtown 6 train near the 96th Street station just around noon on Wednesday; he spread out his arms, then hit a steel bar and suffered head trauma. And the man had reportedly been smoking synthetic marijuana before the incident. Pablo Reyes, 45, identified the man as Grumps, a panhandler who has been homeless for about a year, and may have been staying at a shelter on West 25th Street. “He was hanging out getting high,” Reyes told the News. “I told him, ‘Stop getting high off that s**t. It ain’t no good for you. He probably was hallucinating.” Reyes was a witness to the fatal incident as well: “He was standing up with his hands open. He saw the beam coming. He laid down. He tried to duck down. It opened his head right up.“
Honestly I don’t wanna sound like a dick but if you’re homeless and high on drugs and your nickname is Grumps you’re probably kind of a dick. Like I’m sorry you’re dead but I dont think many people are gonna miss you. Certainly not the people who were on the 6 when you decided to train surf like a goddam asshole. Can’t you just sleep and masturbate in public like the rest of the Homeless? Nobody wants some X-Games Hobo running around trying to get his rush of adrenaline. Just do drugs and sit there like all your other buddies and don’t fuck with people commuting.
