NY Post – Somebody up there must like Mary Downey. The 22-year-old Bronx woman was run over by three Manhattan subway trains Sunday morning — and walked away with nothing more than a busted shoulder. Downey, an Irish immigrant living in Woodlawn, miraculously avoided being crushed to death by the three subway trains after accidentally falling onto the tracks at a Times Square station, then quickly lying in the trough between them, law-enforcement sources said. “It just wasn’t her time,’’ an amazed source said. Authorities said Downey’s three-fold brush with death came after she drunkenly staggered into the 49th Street station near Seventh Avenue at around 6 a.m. to catch a train home. As she was waiting on the platform, Downey toppled over and fell onto the tracks — breaking her shoulder — as a northbound N train was approaching. Unable to lift herself off the rails, Downey apparently managed to position herself between the rails as at least one of the trains barreled over her, police sources said. At one point, it appeared she may have been able to roll to the scant space between the platform and the tracks, sources said. “She was lucky enough to have, it looks like to us, rolled to the platform and was in between the platform and the train when the train came into the station,” said FDNY Battalion Chief Mike Meyers. A source said, “She rolls to a place where she can hide.” After the first train passed over her, Downey continued to lie helplessly on the track bed of the empty station as yet another train operator unknowingly drove over her, too, according to police, who said she was conscious through much of the terrifying ordeal. Downey wasn’t discovered until the third train’s operator spotted what he thought was a piece of trash on the tracks. It was actually Downey’s hand waving for help, sources said. The subway operator realized there was a person on the tracks and ground the train to a halt — but not before the train’s third car passed over her. Paramedics were called and removed Downey from under the train, police said. Strapped to a gurney and covered in soot, she was rushed by ambulance to Bellevue Hospital, where she was treated for her busted shoulder.
Well thats a shitty fucking way to cap off our Sunday funday. Broken shoulder laying on the ground of the subway for like a half hour at 6am. I mean everyone knows the risk you take when you decide to get shitfaced on a Sunday. Usually right around 7pm you realize you’re beyond the point of no return. Brunch has officially turned into dinner and you’re too drunk to stop partying and you know you’re gonna drink the rest of the night. Maybe you watch the late Sunday Night Football game if its the fall. If its the summer you just keep boozing outside somewhere. And you accept the fact that Monday is gonna be a nightmare. Usually you roll over at about 5am in your bed with intense cotton mouth and an outrageous headache still half drunk and you can gauge just how shitty your Monday morning hangover is gonna be.
And thats when you’re in the comfort of your own bed with all your limbs intact. When you’re waking up at 6am with a broken shoulder laying in the subway tracks watching the N train fly by on top of you, you can rest assured your Monday is gonna fucking suck. Like this chick can rest assured it wasn’t worth it. No matter how much fun she had yesterday, she probably should have gone home right around that 6pm/7pm cutoff hour.
PS – This is why an Irish immigrant should never leave Woodlawn. Just stick to the Rambling House next time babe. Never venture any further than that. Too dangerous for our kind.
