NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A two-year-old boy was killed after being struck by a train at the Fulton Street station in lower Manhattan at the height of the afternoon rush Wednesday.
The child was transported to New York-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
He was with his mother at the time of the incident. A source told 1010 WINS that the child became seperated from his mother and ran too close to the oncoming train.
"There are delays and multiple impacts to 2/3/4/5 train service while we get emergency medical assistance for someone who was struck by a train at Fulton St." the MTA tweeted. "We have removed third-rail power from the 2/3 line tracks at Fulton St and are in the process of re-routing trains."
