Sleepy drunk literally gets legless – after train hits him

A drunken man lost a leg after he was run over by a subway train while trying to sleep it off beneath a platform in Woodside, Queens, the New York Post reports.

Cops say that in the early hours of the morning the 26-year-old man tried to tuck himself under a part of the train platform where he wouldn’t be noticed and dozed off.

But his resting place was right next to the tracks, and the man’s leg was run over by a train.

The victim, whose name was not released, was taken to Elmhurst Hospital, where he is expected to survive (minus a leg).

    Hello there! This particular simubt couldn’t be published any better! Scanning this post reminds me of my previous area mate! I adore viewing websites that view the importance of providing an excellent useful resource for nothing. Actually the blogging is distributing its wings rapidly. The actual article is a good example of computer. I became reading through several of your site content here and i also consider this site is really informative.

      bluebelleYesterday, 12:38 PM chomulungma,oh yes, of csuore we cannot feed every hungry person on the street. but you know, if everyone thinks that way, no one wil be helping these people at all. you cannot make a difference to every person, but you can at least make a difference to one, or two, or ten people. haven’t you heard of this simple principle before?do you think your comparison of the everest expedition and china or america’s space programme is justified? if you do, then i think you obviously don’t know what a space programme is. you may want to go and up more about what space programmes involve, the number of people it hires to do the jobs, the technological inventions it brings about and the far reaching consequences it has for a nation.i am not talking about charity work here. you need to distinguish between what is considered charity and what is considered welfare . the word charity is applicable only to individuals who can choose whether or not they want to help a fellow human being. however, a government does not do acts of charity . it would be silly to think that. at the government level, it is a responsibility, a duty of the people that we vote into office. i am talking about basic social welfare that any government, especially one that aspires to be a good government, ought to provide for its citizens.as for ayuthya, i am not sure why it was brought up. if you are alleging that the ruins are around to protect the country’s heritage, may i point out to you that these very same cultural ruins is also a tourist attraction that makes money for the country? would the govt maintain the ruins if they were not of any monetary value? there are enough demolished historical temples around to suggest that this is not the case.again, i am sorry that you seem to take the view that social welfare is less important than a mountaineering expedition. if i were an ultra-pragmatic singaporean then i would not be suggesting that the government gives priority to giving more help to the needy instead of funding expeditions. because, in hard financial terms, funding the needy also does not give any good returns for the government. they have no money, many of them are old, they cannot attract any investors.in essence, i think we are two idealists supporting different stands. i guess we shall just have to agree to disagree. hopefully, the everest climbers can be much more active in sharing their experience with the rest of singapore, such as through schools, so that at least, what they have gained doesn’t just remain in the exclusive circle of the mountain climbers.

      There is a 20km route that ve done starting right ostiude my back door in Canton (just north of Port Hope). There are a few hills at the beginning and end of the ride but mostly it is on the flat and there is virtually no traffic. The route goes along country roads, through a forest (still on a paved road though) and beside farmer’s fields it is very beutiful. If anyone is interested in doing this ride, they would be welcome to meet at my house (It’s easy to find directions to follow). Pam

    When going out on a date have a plan for your first date, revolve it around
    the person you are meeting up with and what would be of interest to both of you.
    If you’ve ever looked at a profile with no picture, you may think that someone looks much
    differently than they actually look. The night after prom during our
    senior year, the two of us were partying at a friends place.
