Man Dies After Pants Are Trapped by Subway Doors

A New York City subway rider died on Thursday after an episode late Wednesday when his pants became caught in the doors of a Q train as he exited, causing him to be dragged along the platform and then onto the tracks, the police said.

The episode took place just before midnight at the Avenue M station in Midwood, Brooklyn, and the man, who the police said appeared to be in his 30s and whom they did not identify, was taken to Maimonides Medical Center.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which runs the subway, said that service was disrupted between Kings Highway and Prospect Park until about 3:30 a.m.
