Watch The Gap: Union Square Subway Station Has Most Falls

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Better mind the gap at the Union Square subway station.

Statistics show the subway station leads the system in number of falls from the platform: a total of 14 riders fell  between 2008 and 2009.

It’s the same station where a 41-year-old man fell Friday night as he was pinned by a train. He’s recovering and is said to be in critical condition.

The Daily News cites a combination of platform extenders and high ridership as contributing to the number of incidents.

    The gap fillers do not match up with the train doorways, and haven’t done so for any train class from R62, upwards.
