Wray, 18, said she walked by the man as she was waiting for the train. But the man attacked her from behind and pushed her onto the tracks before running away.
She said the man did not say anything and was just “talking to himself,” and said she may have died if another man had not stepped in and pulled her up.READ MORE: Police Investigating Second French Bulldog Theft Theft On Long Island In Handful Of Days
“He just came, like two hands, and just pushed me in there, and I was like, ‘Oh my God,’” Wray said. “The train was going to come in three minutes so lucky thing the Spanish guy pulled me up in time so, if he didn’t pull me up in time, I think by then, I would’ve probably been gone.”
Wray was not seriously injured.MORE NEWS: Members Of Broadway Community, Fans Gather In Times Square, Central Park To Pay Tribute To Stephen Sondheim
